Casting has begun on Disney Channel’s new original live-action movie based on the hit animated series Kim Possible, which debuted on the network in 2002.
Script writers are Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley, who created the original show, and Josh Cagan. McCorkle, Schooley and Zanne Devine are executive producers on the movie, which is being co-directed and co-produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky.
Adam Bonnett, the executive VP of original programming at Disney Channels Worldwide, commented: “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. As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional, 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.”
