You’ll never guess what movie is being filmed right now. It’s a movie that has been in the works since 2008 at least, but never seemed to be able to take off.
It’s Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List based on the novel by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan!
Per the synopsis, “Naomi and Ely are best friends. Naomi loves and is in love with Ely, and Ely loves Naomi, but prefers to be in love with boys. So they create their ‘No Kiss List’ of people neither of them is allowed to kiss. And this works fine – until Bruce. Bruce is Naomi’s boyfriend, so there’s no reason to put him on the List. But Ely kissed Bruce even though he is boring. The result: a rift of universal proportions and the potential end of ‘Naomi and Ely: the institution.’ Can these best friends come back together again?”
The film version of this book is being directed by Kristin Hanggi and stars Victoria Justice and Pierson Fode in the lead roles. Not many details have been released about this movie since it all came together within the last few weeks, but I will be keeping my eyes open for more news from the set.
One of the authors took to Twitter to share her excitement for the film:

On Monday, the stars were seen filming in Washington Square Park (NYC).
We will definitely be following this production as closely as possible!
