Here’s another copmics-based movie winging its way to us: a remake of St. Triniam’s based ona serie sof cartoon by Ronald Searle. Set in England, the film — which is based on the Belles of St. Trinian’s series of the ’50s, follows a bunch of hell-raising English schoolgirls:

Now, 53 years on, the young ladies are returning to the big screen in a £7 million adaptation of cartoonist Ronald Searle’s hilarious tales of mischief and japery.
The linked article goes into depth on the six young stars, and hopefully for the Brit press, at least one of them will develop a habit of running around half naked and OD-ing so the tabs will have something to write about.
