In the News: Nancy Drew Movie – Skating!

If you didn’t hear, there is a Nancy Drew movie in the works. So far the only information up until yesterday was that it was called “Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase” and they cast Sophia Lillis as Nancy Drew.

The latest news was that they have begun filming and have released photos of her, as Nancy, skateboarding. You can check out the full article and all the pictures here on this site. Here’s a quote from the web site: “The new movie “centers on a pair of elderly sisters and their strange experiences in their Victorian-era house, leading to the duo being accused of murder. Nancy must act quickly to save the sisters from jail,” according to Variety.”

What do you think of this modern look? What do you think of the skateboarding? Are you excited or cautious about the movie? I’m excited that the actress is a red-head and is around the right age (16-18), but I’ve never imagined Nancy to be the tomboyish one. I’ve always imagined George, her friend, to be the one most likely to skate and wear clothes with tears and is comfortable. I wonder how this will shape Nancy’s character?

    I hate it. 🙁

    It’s hard to say… After seeing IT, that’s all I can see Sophia as: the girl from IT. Yeah, I don’t know what their plans are in regards to her looks… perhaps she’s going undercover in this scene?

  3. Michelle says:

    Not a fan, but I’m cautiously open minded…

  4. Aly says:

    I think she’s a great choice but not feeling the skater Nancy lol.

    I think she looks good. The hairstyle’s not at all how I’d picture Nancy, but I’m willing to reserve judgment until I actually see the movie – which I did not know about until I saw this post. Now I’m starting to get excited!
    This isn’t related to the post, but I was looking at the internship job listing (I’m not eligible – no marketing or visual arts experience *sigh*) and I noticed that the careers page says you keep resumes on file. Now, working for HerInteractive ranks pretty high on my dream job list. Do you (HER, not you personally, of course) hire often? What sort of positions might be available in the future? Would there be a possibility of a job involving writing? I don’t know if you can answer these questions, but I thought I’d ask. Thanks so much!

      Hello hbndgirl! We don’t have a regular schedule or routine on how often we hire people, but lately our positions for hire have been in marketing. No telling what else the future may hold! (So keep checking our careers page.) 😉

    I’m not really sold on the “The Hidden Staircase” in the 21st century remake, but the plot looks great. I wish they’d kept to the 1930’s setting to pay homage to the book instead of dragging it into modern times.

    It looks cool and the actress I have seen from the newest IT movie and she is very talented so I think it will end up being a good movie. It will be interesting though.

    It sure is nice when companies share pictures of what they’re working on. I wish all companies did so, especially for projects they’ve been working on for 3 years.

      Hello Unhappy Anonymous, I would love to share more behind-the-scenes info or tidbits on our work in progress – but it will have to wait until we have an “ok” to share more.

    Hi LJ! Can I have a birthday shout out on June 10? My fav game is Secret of the Scarlet Hand 🙂 Thanks in advance!

  10. Sakura says:

    Not much 🙁 If you hadn’t said it was Nancy I would’ve thought it was George lol.

    After all the Nancy Drew movies and shows that haven’t shown Nancy very well (although Pamela Sue Martin’s portrayal was pretty close), I’m cautious of new adaptations. BUT! So far, this looks promising, and I hope they don’t make unnecessary changes to her friends, family, and environment. And I’ve always seen Nancy as a good balance of girly-girl and tomboy; that’s how she gets along so well with Bess and George.

    Although I am skeptical, this looks heaps and bounds better than the formerly proposed Nancy Drew TV show, where they changed everything about her and just slapped her name on another New York cop drama.

    This movie is just so, so bad I could’t force myself to watch til the plot mystery. Is it really necessary to portray the main character for a movie aimed at 12 year old girls as an obvious lesbian? #eyeroll. These three friends are so smart-alecky, disrespectful, and just loaded with rude and obnoxious comments I can’t imagine how ANYone could watch this movie through. The entire production is spitting in the face of the real Nancy Drews and setting a bad, bad example for tweens. The only positive impression I got was the skateboarding dance at the intro… which wasn’t played by smarmy Sophia Lillis lol
