Kristen Bell has signed to star in "You Again," a Disney comedy that Andy Fickman is directing.
Written by Moe Jelline, the story follows a young woman (Bell) who finds out her brother is marrying the girl who made her high school years a living hell. She tries to show her brother his fiancee's true colors.
The studio hopes to begin production in late summer in Los Angeles.
Fickman is producing with Eric Tannenbaum and John J. Strauss. LouAnne Brickhouse and Todd Murata are overseeing for Disney.
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, repped by CAA and Brookside Management, recently wrapped shooting on Universal's comedy "Couples Retreat" with Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau and Jason Bateman. (partialdiff)
