LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Lionsgate has picked up U.S. rights to "LOL," a coming-of-age comedy starring Miley Cyrus, Demi Moore and Ashley Greene.

Moore, who plays Cyrus' mother, accidentally reads her high-school daughter's racy journal and realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown.

The movie was written and directed by Lisa Azuelo, the filmmaker behind the 2008 French film on which it is based. It was produced by Lionsgate-owned Mandate Pictures, the company behind "Juno" and "Whip It."
