Disney Branded Television has started filming on their new movie The Slumber Party, based on Jen Malone’s hit novel The Sleepover. The project comes from Imagine Kids+Family, a division of Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Entertainment.
According to our sources, the project is being developed as a Disney+ Original Movie. The movie has also set up a talented young cast that includes Darby Camp (Big Little Lies), Emmy Liu-Wang (Raven’s Home), Valentina Herrera (Black Widow), Dallas Liu (Shang-Chi), and newcomers Alex Cooper Cohen and Ramon Rodriguez star in the coming-of-age comedy, directed by Veronica Rodriguez (Let’s Get Married), and written by Eydie Faye (Fuller House).
According to Deadline, The Slumber Party depicts the hilarious aftermath of a sleepover birthday party hypnotism gone wrong as best friends Megan (Camp) and Paige (Liu-Wang), along with soon-to-be step-sister Veronica (Cooper Cohen), wake up with absolutely no memory of the night before. Now they must retrace their steps to find missing birthday girl Anna Maria (Herrera) … and explain why there’s a flock of baby ducks in the bathtub, what happened to Megan’s left eyebrow, and why she’s wearing unattainable hottie Jake Ramirez’s (Rodriguez) signature black hoodie.
According to Deadline, Grazer and Howard will serve as executive producers alongside Stephanie Sperber Jennilee Cummings.
