The popular 2000s cartoon series Kim Possible will be getting the live-action treatment, Variety reports.
According to the outlet, Disney Channel developing the project, and is currently casting the project. For those who don’t know, the animated series followed high schooler Kim Possible, who doubles as a secret agent of sorts. With the help of her sidekick Ron Stoppable and hacker Wade, she helps save the world from evil villains like the devious Dr. Drakken.
The original series ran for 87 episodes on the Disney Channel starting in 2002, and also went on to inspire two animated Disney Channel original movies, Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama, and Kim Possible: A Stitch in Time.
Adam Bonnett, executive VP, original programming for Disney Channel Worldwide, had the following to say about the upcoming film:
“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.”
The script for the film is being written by series creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley, who will also serve as executive producers. Joining them in writing duties is Josh Cagan, who is known for writing The DUFF. On board to direct are mostly Disney XD TV directors Zach Lipovsky and Adam Stein, who worked on the series Mech-X4.
