Calling all Wimps!

Early next year, Fox 2000 will be releasing a film of our very own Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney. The film company already have a director and a producer (who worked on Pirates of the Caribbean!) but even more excitingly they're currently auditioning for the leading role of Greg Heffley himself. And anyone in the USA can audition!

If you fancy a good laugh Check out some of the audition tapes on the 'I am the Wimpy Kid' site where lots of American boys have been trying their hand at being Greg.

It's hard to imagine Jeff Kinney's brilliantly funny illustrations taking the form of real people, but if any of these hysterical videos are anything to go by then the film will be side-splittingly funny. I cannot WAIT for it to come out!
