Lana Del Rey announces she's writing a screenplay
Lana Del Rey released her first studio album in January, but she also has a passion for film. In a new interview with the Australian edition of Vogue (Via NME), Del Rey reveals that screenwriting is her “happy place,” adding that she’d like to “branch out into film work and stay there.”
Del Rey didn’t provide any details about this script, which she says she is working on now, but we thought we’d brainstorm a few for her.
1. A “stiff, distant and weird” sophomore must overcome her stutter to face off against her high school’s mean girls clique in a talent competition. She finds her voice (and love?) with a mysterious stranger in blue jeans and a white shirt only to learn that he is dying of cancer. Oh, and the mean girls perform “Jingle Bell Rock.” Obviously.
2. An mousy accountant jeopardizes everything she’s worked for when she strikes up a summer romance with a bad boy on the streets, to be played by Shia LaBeouf. It’s Counting on Love! She was counting the numbers, but she wasn’t counting on finding him.
3. A struggling singer finds success when a famous DJ picks her out of a crowd at a New York City nightclub. Oh, wait.
So readers, what do you think Lana Del Rey’s movie should be about?
