Kristen Bell to star in ‘You Again’

Andy Fickman directing Disney comedy

Kristen Bell has been cast as the lead in Disney’s comedy “You Again,” to be helmed by Andy Fickman.

Actress will play a girl who’s horrified to find that her brother is marrying the very girl who made her life a living hell in high school.

Pic starts lensing in the summer. Dave Johnson and Moe Jelline penned the script.

“You Again” will be Fickman’s follow-up to “Race to Witch Mountain” and will be his third consecutive film for the Mouse House, following “Race” and “The Game Plan.”

Fickman is producing with Eric Tannenbaum and John J. Strauss through his Oops Doughnuts shingle, which he started with Betsy Sullenger, who will be a co-producer.

Disney has been keen on Bell since tapping her to star in Touchstone’s romantic comedy “When in Rome” alongside Josh Duhamel and Dax Shepard. It unspools in August.

Bell provides a regular voiceover on the CW’s “Gossip Girl” and was seen on NBC’s “Heroes.” Since last year’s “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” she’s also landed a co-starring role in the Universal comedy “Couple’s Retreat,” due out in October, and is the lead female voice in the animated pic “Astro Boy,” also out that month.
