EXCLUSIVE: We hear that the movie The Re-Education of Molly Singer is currently in production with Britt Robertson playing the title character who is a struggling young lawyer, yearning for her carefree days and raucous university nights from a decade ago.
In the Todd Friedman and Kevin Haskin written feature, the former Queen of Campus Molly Singer has just botched the biggest case of her career due to her inability to let go of her hard partying lifestyle. Rather than firing her, Molly is tasked by her boss Brenda to re-enroll at her old alma mater, to befriend her socially awkward son, Elliot (Simpkins), and guide him through an already tumultuous freshman year. Equipped with her quick wit, years of experience and her best friend Paulie, Molly discovers that college has certainly changed since her glory days, and maybe it really is time to move on from the best four years of her life to a new journey. Santos will play Ollie, Roden is Trina and Malick will play Mrs. Zimmerman.
