The next American Girl movie, following in the footsteps of Samantha, Felicity, and Molly, will be about Kit. The Depression-era movie is slated for a summer 2008 theatrical release. The previous three films were all TV-movies.
Abigail Breslin and Willow Smith (daughter of Will) play the lead roles. Supporting roles will be filled by Chris O'Donnell, Julia Ormond, Joan Cusack, and Stanley Tucci.
As with the previous films, actress Julia Roberts is among the film's producers.
