(Hollywood) - Amanda Bynes is hard at work on the upcoming Disney film Radioactive Romance. The plucky yet adorable actress is blinded by science and fun as a young Marie Curie.
The She's The Man and Sydney White star is portraying the Nobel Prize winning scientist during her college years at the University Of Paris where her bumbling antics and goofy hijinks cause all kinds of trouble in the laboratory, enraging the always exasperated Dean of the chemistry department, played by British funnyman Ricky Gervais.
"Madam Curie was a pioneer in the field of physics and chemistry," Bynes stated before shooting the food fight scene on the University Of Paris cafeteria set. "I honestly believe this film will do justice to her legacy. We filmed the scene yesterday where Marie trips on a test tube, destroys a lab and discovers uranium. It's very true to how it actually happened."
Radioactive Romance will also tell the story of how Marie met and fell in love with her future husband Pierre Curie, who will probably be played by one of the hot guys from that Gossip Girl show all the kids are watching.
