Amanda Seyfried, fresh from seducing everyone around her in Chloe and sweeping Channing Tatum off his feet (and the US box office) in Dear John, is planning a new film with McG, based on the Rolling Stone article The Girl Who Conned The Ivy League.
It's the story of a young woman called Esther Reed who, unhappy with her own life, adopted other identities in order to reinvent herself and get into college. Despite being a high-school dropout, her new identities helped her to get into prestigious colleges (including time spent at Harvard and Columbia) and collect student loans - until an investigation into a disappeared girl revealed that Esther was using her name falsely.
At the moment, McG and Seyfried are attached to a pitch by screenwriter Lorene Scafaria (Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist) based on the article by Sabrina Rubin Erdely. There's a long way to go, therefore, before we see this one come together, but it sounds like it's worth keeping an eye on, a sort of Catch Me If You Can for the modern day.
