Ice Princess: According to The Hollywood Reporter, newcomer Trevor Blumas is lacing up his ice skates to star opposite Michelle Trachtenberg in Ice Princess for the Walt Disney Co. Shooting is scheduled to begin next week with Tim Fywell at the helm.

Ice Princess, described as "Flashdance" meets "Bring It On," follows a brainy ugly duckling (Trachtenberg) who realizes her dream of becoming a champion figure skater with the help of a disgraced coach and the boy (Blumas) who drives the Zamboni ice resurfacing machine. Bridget Johnson is producing the project. Hadley Davis penned the most recent draft of the screenplay.

Blumas appeared on the TV series "Due South" and "Earth: Final Conflict." He is repped by the Gersh Agency and Miles Levy of James/Levy/Jacobson.
