Your favorite animated teenage spy is coming back to Disney Channel in a live-action film currently in development.

For those who aren’t familiar, “Kim Possible” premiered on Disney Channel back in 2002 and ran for a solid 87 episodes on the cable channel. The show grew to be so popular that it was even nominated for an Emmy in 2003 for Outstanding Animated Program.

Additionally, due to this success, the show had been spun off into two animated Disney Channel Movies, “Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama” and “Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time” and now the classic cartoon is inspiring a new live-action film.

The live-action movie script will be written by the “Kim Possible” creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley, who will also executive produce the film. This creative team also includes Josh Cagan and Zanne Devine, who will assist with writing and serve as executive producers on the project. It’s also been announced that Adam B. Stein and Zach Lipovsky are set to co-direct and co-produce the film.

Following the announcement, Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide expressed his excitement for the coming project, “As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional, I’m thrilled to be working again with Mark and Bob and to welcome the addition of a dynamic creative team – Josh, Zanne, Adam and Zach – into a world where anything is indeed possible.”

There’s no word on when this live-action film will premiere on Disney Channel. Currently, the project is being cast.
