Kristen Bell gained a lot of fans thanks to Veronica Mars, but since then she’s only managed to flit around the edge of movie stardom. Now she’s got another couple of role she’ll hope will cement her position as a box office talent, as she’s set to star in Neil LaBute’s Some Girl, as well as Disney’s animated project, Frozen.
THR reports that LaBute’s adaptation of his stage play stars Adam Brody (Damsels in Distress) as a man who attempts to make amends with several ex-girlfriends on the eve of his wedding. Bell plays Bobbi, a smart, articulate woman he bailed on years before without a word, leaving her without respect or love for him.
Bell has also signed up to voice the lead role in Frozen, an upcoming animated musical from Walt Disney Pictures. Frozen is the latest incarnation of Disney’s endless attempts to make a movie based on The Snow Queen fairy story. However, it’s not known how much of the oriignal tale remains, or who Bell might play, although it is said that she will be both speaking and singing as the lead character. Chris Buck (Surf’s Up) is directing. The film’s due out late 2013.
