Christy Carlson Romano (‘Even Stevens’) voiced the titular 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 a new team to lead their upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie.
Casting director Blyth Nailling will lead the search for the perfect cheerleader turned crime fighter, along with her BFF, Ron Stoppable, and his naked mole rat, Rufus.
The new ‘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.
Adam Bonnett, executive vice president of original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a recent statement:
“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.”
