Ice Princess: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kim Cattrall is heading to the rink, signing on to play a former ice skating phenom in the Walt Disney Co.'s Ice Princess. The project, directed by Tim Fywell, is Cattrall's first following her Golden Globe-winning run on HBO's "Sex and the City."
Cattrall is taking on a role that is quite the opposite of the sexy siren Samantha she played on "Sex and the City" by portraying an ice skating instructor who at one time had a chance to make the Olympics but now is helping Michelle Trachtenberg's character fulfill her skating dreams.
Juliana Cannarozzo, Trevor Blumas and Hayden Panettiere round out the cast. Writers on the project include Hadley Davis and Leslie Dixon, the latter of whom penned the most recent version.
