booksmart team

Olivia Wilde and Katie Silberman, who both worked together on this year’s critically acclaimed and altogether wonderful Booksmart, are getting together again. The duo will create an untitled holiday comedy for Universal, and while there are absolutely zero details about the project, we’re such fans of Booksmart around here that we’re still excited. These talented people don’t need me to tell them how to do their jobs, but if they’re taking suggestions, I recommend making this a sequel with the same cast called A Very Booksmart Christmas.

When I first watched Booksmart during its world premiere at SXSW, I fell in love with this high school comedy in an instant. When we talk about the films that we wished we had while growing up, this is one of them. It feels like an instant classic. Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein are both phenomenal in the film and I couldn’t stop laughing at every ridiculous and wonderful joke.

Booksmart screenwriter Katie Silberman (she shares screenplay credit with Emily Halpern, Sarah Haskins, and Susanna Fogel) spoke with /Film over the phone this week to discuss the writing process as well as favorite high school comedies. Before the world premiere, I chatted with Katie Silberman on the red carpet. Some of that conversation has been edited into the transcript of our phone conversation.

Annapurna opens Booksmart in theaters on May 24, 2019.
