Kristen Bell Heads for Rome


Kristen Bell will star in When in Rome, a film that Mark Steven Johnson (Ghost Rider, Daredevil) will direct from his own script for Disney, reports Variety.

Gary Foster, Andrew Panay and Rikki Bestall will produce and shooting begins March 31 in New York and Rome.

Bell will play a successful real estate agent in New York who can’t find a lasting relationship. When her younger sister impulsively marries in Rome, she flies out for the wedding and, after picking up coins from a reputed “fountain of love,” finds an overabundance of suitors waiting for her back home.

Bell, who was part of the “Heroes” cast this past season, will next be seen playing the title role in the Judd Apatow-produced and scripted Universal comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, as well as Fanboys for The Weinstein Company.
