Kiersey Clemons in Talks for Disney's Live-Action 'Lady and the Tramp'
Kiersey Clemons is in talks to join Disney's live-action/CGI remake of Lady and the Tramp.
Clemons would play one of the film's live-action roles, Darling, the owner of Lady. Justin Theroux will voice Tramp, the streetwise mutt who tries to win over the pampered Cocker Spaniel after she ends up on the street once her owners have a baby. Ashley Jensen has also been cast to voice Scottish Terrier Jackie.
Charlie Bean (The Lego Ninjago Movie) is directing the remake, which is expected to debut on Disney's upcoming digital streaming service, which is set to launch in 2019. Andrew Bujalski wrote the script for the adaptation, and Jessica Virtue and Chaz Salembier are overseeing for Disney.
Clemons, who is repped by UTA, MJMG, Mach 1 and Jackoway Austen, is in theaters now with the Sundance indie Hearts Beat Loud. She is set to star in the Blumhouse feature Sweetheart from Sleight director J.D. Dillard.
