Femme firepower for Disney's 'Again'
Jamie Lee Curtis, Kristin Chenoweth among actors in castThe Disney comedy "You Again" has taken on some female power.
Jamie Lee Curtis, Kristin Chenoweth, Odette Yustman and Betty White have joined the cast, as has Victor Garber. They join Kristen Bell and Sigourney Weaver in the film, to be directed by Andy Fickman.
The story line centers on a woman (Bell) who finds out that her brother is planning 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. Fickman is producing with Eric Tannenbaum and John Strauss.
LouAnne Brickhouse and Todd Murata are overseeing for the studio, which hopes to start shooting in late summer in Los Angeles.
CAA-repped Curtis is a Disney favorite, having starred in 2003's "Freaky Friday" and appeared in "Beverly Hills Chihuahua."
Chenoweth, repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment, most recently 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 most recently starred in David Goyer's "The Unborn." She is repped by ICM and Evolution.
The APA-repped White next stars in Disney's "The Proposal," which opens Friday, and Gersh-repped Garber most recently appeared as San Francisco Mayor George Moscone in "Milk."
