The original animated Kim Possible series ran from 2002 to 2007 and was centred around the titular character. Although she may not possess any ‘super powers’, she’s certainly a hero in her own right. She’s an ordinary teenage girl who helps save the planet from evil-doers alongside her trusty friends and sidekicks Ron Stoppable, Wade and Rufus the mole-rat.
According to Variety.com, original series creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley, co-wrote the script for the live-action movie alongside Josh Cagan and they will serve as executive producers. Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky are co-directing and producing.
Disney noted via Twitter that the casting process for the Kim Possible live-action movie had just gotten underway back on February 7th, but there hasn’t been any announcements so far.
