LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Kristen Bell will star in the comedy “You Again,” playing a young woman trying to stop her brother’s wedding to her onetime nemesis.
After finding out her brother is marrying the girl who made her high school years a living hell, the main character tries to find a way to show her brother the fiancee’s true colors.
Andy Fickman (“Race to Witch Mountain”) is directing the film for Walt Disney Pictures. Moe Jelline wrote the script.
Bell’s deal puts her back in business with Disney, for whom she stars in the romantic comedy “When in Rome,” which will be released in August.
The actress, whose TV work has included “Veronica Mars,” “Heroes” and “Gossip Girl,” recently wrapped Universal’s comedy “Couples Retreat” with Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau and Jason Bateman.
