Bella Thorne announced on Twitter that she will star alongside Mae Whitman in CBS Films’ comedy “The DUFF”.
Ari Sandel will direct a script by Josh A. Cagan, who adapted the novel of the same name by Kody Keplinger.
The story follows Bianca (Whitman), a high school senior whose world is turned upside down when she discovers she’s been labeled her social group’s DUFF (designated ugly fat friend), a sidekick of sorts to her prettier, more popular friends. She becomes determined to reinvent herself, enlisting her fellow DUFFs in a scheme to overthrow Madison, the school’s evil queen.
Thorne will play Madison, who will do everything in her power to keep Bianca in her place as a DUFF. Sounds like Bella will be playing a mean girl!
Bella is currently filming Amityville with co stars Cameron Monaghan and McKenna Grace. Jennifer Jason Leigh plays their mother.
Her movie, Blended, with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore hits theaters at the end of May.
Her other movies:
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day, Home Invasion, Big Sky and Mostly Ghostly 2, are in post production.
This is turning out to be a busy year for Bella who is also supporting several charities and a spokesperson for Neutrogena.

Mall at Robinson is kicking off summer June 7th with a Summer Jam!
Drake Bell will Jam with fans then have a meet and greet after! There will also be mini Make- Overs, mini pedis, prizes, and snacks!
When malls have events like this, it’s best to go as early as possible. Find a security guard or someone in charge and ask where fans can line up. See if they are passing out wristbands or any thing to the first people there so they can be sure to meet the talent!
Make a sign or design t-shirts to be noticed and show the talent and press that you are big fan! This might help you get special treatment or attention and get noticed.
