"That’s a lot of work, I’ll tell you," she admitted.

"Meeting with production companies, I have my storyline and my idea and then assembling a team, talking and meeting with different writers."

"And then I get different pitches and then I talk to them."

Avril explained, "So I found someone right now that I’m digging. And so I think we’re moving forward."

"And then once the script’s written, I’m just producing and overseeing the whole project."

The iconic track dropped in 2002 and became a massive hit.

The song follows the story of a girl who rejects the boy she fancies because he's a skateboarding, 'punk.'

Her friends were against the idea of them getting together, and, 'stuck up their nose,' to him.

Years later, the girl regrets her decision to steer clear of him when he becomes a successful musician playing on MTV.

We can't wait to see the trailer for this new movie!
