Paper Kite acquires MOXIE movie rights


Calling all riot grrrls! Movie rights to Jennifer Mathieu’s upcoming novel Moxie sold to Paper Kite, Amy Poehler’s production banner.

In Moxie, Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with sexist dress codes, her strict Texan school administration, and fed up with being a good girl who always follows the rules. Inspired by her mom’s Riot Grrrl past, she creates a feminist zine that sparks a revolution.

Paper Kite produces Hulu’s “Difficult People” and “Broad City” on Comedy Central. The Moxie movie is repped by 3 Arts Entertainment, WME and Warren Dern with a deal at Universal.

Moxie releases September 19th. For more on Moxie, visit Mathieu’s website.
