Garcia part of ‘Queen’s’ Mouse court

Sugarman to direct pic based on Sheldon book

Adam Garcia has signed to play the male lead opposite Lindsay Lohan and Alison Pill in Disney’s “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.”

Pic, being directed by Sara Sugarman and penned by Gail Parent, is based on Dyan Sheldon’s novel. It’s the story of a teen who’s convinced that her home city revolves around her until her family packs up and moves to the suburbs. There, she finds herself competing for attention because another girl has already staked her claim as the school’s center of attention. Result is a sharp and comic battle for adolescent bragging rights.

“Queen” will be produced by Bob Shapiro and Jerry Leider.

Disney will shoot the pic early this summer.

Garcia, repped by ICM and Brillstein-Grey Management, recently starred in “Love’s Brother’ opposite Giovanni Ribisi, Amelia Warner and David Suchet.

He also voiced “Kangaroo Jack” for Warner Bros.

Last summer he starred in the Olivier-nominated West End production of “Where Do We Live” at London’s Royal Court theater and also starred in the indie feature “Fascination” directed by Klaus Menzel.

His other feature credits include “The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest” for 20th Century Fox and the male lead in producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s romantic comedy “Coyote Ugly” for Disney.
