Kristen Bell set for ballet comedy
Kristen Bell has signed on to lead the dark indie ballet comedy Dance Of The Mirlitons.
The Couples Retreat actress will play an overbearing mother, who will stop at nothing to turn her ambitious but slightly overweight daughter into a ballet star, in Evan Greenberg's film.
"Kristen's combination of comedic timing and authenticity will bring this character to the next level, and give this crossover appeal," producer Daniel Dubiecki told The Hollywood Reporter.
The search is now on for a young actress between the ages of 10 and 12 to play the precocious teenager.
"We're looking to discover an unknown," said the director.
The producers are scouting for locations and hope to begin shooting in the winter.
