There was some very exciting movie news that was announced today! From casting announcements to a synopsis revealing, these were movie news stories that I had to share on 18 Cinema Lane! I usually don’t talk about movie news topics right away, but I since I just posted a movie review, I figured that I could make an exception. The three stories in this post are about two movies from Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and about the live-action Kim Possible movie. What are we waiting for? Let’s start talking!
Today on TVLine’s website, more character castings for the upcoming live action Kim Possible movie have been revealed! According to the article, the following cast members are:
- How I Met Your Mother’s Alyson Hannigan — Kim’s mother a.k.a. Dr. Possible
- The Big C’s Connie Ray — Kim’s grandma a.k.a. Nana
- 12 Monkeys and The Original’s Todd Stashwick — Dr. Drakken
- Taylor Ortega – Shego
- Make It Pop’s Erika Tham – Bonnie
- Bizaardvark’s Ciara Wilson – Athena
I have to admit that this cast sounds really promising! Though I haven’t seen any of these actor’s performances, the photo that was shared in TVLine’s article appears that the cast will look close enough to the characters from the original tv show that it will, hopefully, satisfy a good portion of the fans/audience. Also within this article, it was revealed that this Kim Possible movie will be released sometime in 2019!

On What’s Filming’s website, it was revealed that a third Darrow & Darrow movie will be in production in the Vancouver and British Columbia area from June 11th to June 29th! While no cast members are officially attached to the project, I am excited that the Darrow & Darrow series will continue! If you’ve read my review for Darrow & Darrow: In the Key of Murder, you would know that I am a fan of this series! Having this movie come after the second movie, which was good, I’m hopeful that Darrow & Darrow can continue in a positive direction.

On Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ website, the synopsis for Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: The Disappearing Game has been released! The next Aurora Teagarden movie will be about the following:
“Crime-solving librarian Aurora Teagarden (Candace Cameron Bure) leaps headfirst into Lawrenceton’s latest murder investigation when her nephew Phillip (Dylan Sloane) and his college roommate go missing after the roommate’s girlfriend is found dead. Enlisting the help of her Real Murders pals, and the handsome college professor Nick Miller (Niall Matter) who just moved in across the street from her, Roe uncovers a kidnapping plot gone awry”.
Based on this synopsis, it looks like the creative team behind this series might have a character to replace Martin so Aurora can have a new love interest. Because the movie hasn’t been released yet, we don’t know if this is the significance of Niall Matter’s character. Speaking of release dates, the newest Aurora Teagarden movie will premiere on July 29th!
