Avril Lavigne wants to turn her "Sk8r Boi" hit into a film

Avril Lavigne has revealed that she has plans to turn her huge hit "Sk8r Boi" into a film.

Ahead of the "Sk8r Boi" 20th anniversary in 2022, Avril Lavigne has discussed her plans to take the song to "the next level" by turning it into a film.

While appearing on the iHeartRadio podcast She Is The Voice, Lavigne said (via The A.V. Club), "Recently with it being almost the 20th anniversary, a lot of people have been asking me to play ["Sk8er Boi"] on some TV shows, so it keeps getting brought back up and people will always reference it to me. And so, I’m actually going to turn this song into a film… and take it to the next level."

Lavigne is yet to share more details about the production of the film, but she did remind listeners of the song's context, "The skater boy is in love with the preppy girl but like she's too cool for him but then five years from now she's feeding the baby and she's all alone and she wishes she would have followed her heart and not tried to live up to society's expectations."

Last month Avril Lavigne unveiled her pop-punk anthem "Bite Me", marking her first release since signing to Travis Barker’s DTA Records.
