Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules Movie Coming to Theaters March 25th

The second installment of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies, Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules, will be released to theaters on March 25, 2010. The movie is a comedy about a kid's adventures in middle school based on the book by Jeff Kinney. It is rated PG.

The second movie picks up where the first movie left off. Now Greg Heffley, our not so likeable protagonist, is moving up to the seventh grade. His parents want him to bond with his older brother Rodrick. Neither Greg nor Rodrick are too keen on the idea, but their mom insists and some funny situations follow.

The movie has many of the same familiar characters from the Diary of Wimpy Kid book series including Greg's best friend Rowley Jefferson, the really really weird kid Fregley, Greg's nemesis Parry Farrell, and his small geeky classmate Chirag Gupta.

The book series has been a great success among middle school kids selling over 42 million books. There are currently five books in the series and visual novels, or comics, of some of the books are available on Funbrain, Jeff Kinney's kid's web site. The books are a combination of comics and pictures and storyline. They are comedy and based on Jeff Kinney's middle school experiences.

The movie will be distributed by 20th Century Fox and was directed by David Bowers (Astro Boy, Flushed Away). The screenplay was written by Jeff Filgo (That 70's Show), Jeff Judah, and Gabe Sachs who also wrote the screenplay for the first movie.

The cast of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules movie includes: We predict that this movie will offer plenty of laughs for middle school kids who enjoyed the books as well as those who didn't. We also expect that parents will enjoy the movie as they remember their middle school years and get a good laugh of nostalgia. If the movie series continues with anywhere near the same success as the books, then it will do well at the box office. The first film grossed $22M its opening week and ended up grossing $76M world wide.
