Avril Lavigne Has Revealed Plans For ‘Sk8er Boi’ Movie Adaptation
Avril Lavigne has revealed that she is working on a movie adaption for hit-single Sk8r Boi.
The song was a lead track for 2002 album Let Go – rapidly approaching its 20th year anniversary.
Appearing on iHeartRadio’s podcast, Lavigne revealed her intentions to make the record into something bigger.
“Recently, with it being almost the 20th anniversary, a lot of people have been asking me to play this song on TV shows, so it keeps getting brought back up and people always reference it to me.”
“So, I’m actually going to turn it into a film and take it to the next level.”
Paramount Movies had reportedly looked into bringing it to the big screens back in 2003, but nothing ever materialised.
“It’s [the song] kind of like a missed opportunity at love,” she added.
“The skater boy is in love with the preppy girl and she’s too cool for him but then five years from now she’s feeding the baby and she’s all alone and she wishes she would have followed her heart and not tried to live up to society’s expectations.”
