Cody will also produce the film adaptation with her manager, Mason Novick, Adam Siegel and Marc Platt.
First published in 1983, the Sweet Valley novels chronicled the lives of identical twin sisters with polar-opposite personalities — Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield — in the fictional city of Sweet Valley, Calif. A syndicated TV series based on the books, which ceased publication in 2003, aired from 1994 until 1997, starring twins Brittany and Cynthia Daniel.
