The newly formed Tonik Productions has snagged rights to the literary series in the hopes that it’ll be a new multi-film franchise, featuring a web of sexy schoolgirl espionage so sleek and contemporary, it’ll make James Bond look like a crotchety old dinosaur in a crusty tuxedo.
The “Gallagher Girls” story kicks off at the Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women, where sophomore Cameron Ann Morgan is entering her fourth year of education. But this ain’t no charm school, y’all: the Gallagher Academy is an elite institution for the training of young lady spies, with a direct line from its hallowed halls to the CIA’s recruiting office. And while there’s plenty of boarding-school drama and romantic subplots to contend with, the “Gallagher Girls” series is also all about hardcore lady empowerment, which the head honchos at Tonik say drew them to the series as a hot prospect for Hollywood.
With the news of the option still fresh, it’ll be a while yet before we hear what’s happening with the big-screen adaptation of our beloved Gallagher Girls…but like any good spy, we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground and our eyes peeled for anything that looks suspiciously awesome.
Are you excited for a Gallagher Girls movie, or two, or five?
