The classic Ramona book series, created by author Beverly Cleary and targeted at pre-teens, is coming to life on the big screen. Sisters Beezus and Ramona will be portrayed by Selena Gomez and Joey King, respectively. Fox 2000 Pictures and Walden Media will release the film.
Gomez will portray Beezus, which is a nickname for Beatrice, who is the older sister of Ramona, who will portrayed by King. Fox expects the film to hit the big screen on March 19, 2010. Gomez is already a Disney star, while the nine-year-old King has been working steadily in show business since she was four. She won the role of the precocious Ramona after a nationwide casting call during which her screen test blew the producers away. Aquamarine director Elizabeth Allen has been hired to helm the film.
