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?
