Call or beep everyone you know because Disney is developing a live-action Kim Possible.
Kim Possible is about a teen hero who saves the world from evil while balancing high school. She is backed by Ron Stoppable, a naked mole-rat named Rufus and computer wiz Wade.
The original animated series launched in 2002 and ran for 87 episodes. It also spun two animated films, Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama, and Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time. The series starred Christy Carlson-Romano as Kim, Will Friedle as Ron and Tahj Mowry as Wade.
The film will be written by the series’ creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley. They will also serve as executive producers along with Zanna Devine. Josh Cagan will also join in as a writer. The film will also be co-directed and produced by Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky.
“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,” said Adam Bonnett, executive vice president for Disney Channels Worldwide. “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.”
Casting for the live-action film has just begun. Who do you think should play Kim?
