Kim Possible live-action movie in the works as casting begins
So what’s the sitch? Call and beep everyone you know because Disney Channel is developing a live-action Kim Possible movie — and casting has begun.
Christy Carlson Romano (Even Stevens) voiced the main character in the original Kim Possible cartoon that ran on Disney Channel from 2002-2007. Now, co-directors and co-producers Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky are looking for new blood to populate their upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie.
Casting director Blyth Nailling is leading the charge to see who will play your typical high school student who saves the world on the side along with her BFF, Ron Stoppable, and his naked mole rat, Rufus, as back-up.
The Kim Possible movie was written by Josh Cagan (The DUFF) and original series creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley. McCorkle and Schooley will also executive produce with Zanne Devine.
Someone call Christina Milian to see if she’s up to remix the theme song.
“Mark and Bob created an enduring character and kids all over the world found a friend in her, an average girl who just happens to spend her off-school hours thwarting evil villains. Although Kim Possible ‘can do anything,’ kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them,” Adam Bonnett, executive vice president of original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement.
“As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional,” he continued, “I’m thrilled to be working again with Mark and Bob and to welcome the addition of a dynamic creative team – Josh, Zanne, Adam, and Zach – into a world where anything is indeed possible.”
