By Jay A. Fernandez and Borys Kit
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The comedy feature "You Again" has taken on some female power.
Jamie Lee Curtis, Kristin Chenoweth, Odette Yustman and Betty White have joined the cast of the Disney film, as has Victor Garber. They join Kristen Bell and Sigourney Weaver in the movie, which will be directed by Andy Fickman.
The story centers on a woman (Bell) who finds out that her brother plans to marry the girl who made her high school years a living hell and tries to convince him that his fiancee is not the nice girl she pretends to be.
Curtis and Garber will play Bell's parents, and White will play her grandmother. (Weaver is her rich Aunt Ramona.) Chenoweth plays "a wedding extraordinator." Yustman plays Bell's nemesis.
Moe Jelline wrote the screenplay.
Curtis, who starred in Disney's "Freaky Friday" in 2003, appeared last year in the studio's "Beverly Hills Chihuahua."
Chenoweth starred in the ABC series "Pushing Daisies." Her most recent film was "Four Christmases."
One of the stars of "Cloverfield" and TV's "October Road," Yustman starred this year in the horror thriller "The Unborn."
White next appears on the big screen in the romantic comedy "The Proposal," which opens Friday. Garber's most recent film role was in last year's "Milk," as San Francisco Mayor George Moscone.
