The adventures of young Ramona Quimby (newcomer Joey King) and her big sister Beezus (Selena Gomez) come to life in this all new film based on the best-selling books (over 30 million…and counting) by Beverly Cleary. Ramona’s vivid imagination, boundless energy, and accident-prone antics keep everyone she meets on their toes. But her irrepressible sense of fun, adventure and mischief come in handy when she puts her mind to helping save her family’s home.
John Corbett (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and Bridget Moynahan (I, Robot) also star as Ramona and Beezus’ parents, Robert and Dorothy Quimby, while Ginnifer Goodwin (He’s Just Not That Into You) portrays the girls’ Aunt Bea, opposite Josh Duhamel (Transformers) as Bea’s former flame, Hobart. Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) plays Ramona’s third grade teacher, Mrs. Meacham.
Elizabeth Allen (Aquamarine) directs from a screenplay by Laurie Craig and Nick Pustay. Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan produce for Fox 2000 Pictures and Walden Media. The cinematographer is John Bailey, ASC; Brent Thomas is the production designer; and Jane Moran is the editor. Co-producer is Brad Van Arragon. Music is by Mark Mothersbaugh, and the music supervisor is Julia Michels.
First published over 50 years ago, Beverly Cleary’s books have entertained several generations of readers. The cast and filmmakers of the first major motion picture based on Cleary’s series — RAMONA AND BEEZUS — typifies the books’ cross-generational appeal. The film’s Ramona, Joey King, began reading the book series before she was cast in the role. Selena Gomez, the on-screen Beezus, had read the books in elementary school. “I love how Beverly writes the characters,” says the popular singer-actress. “We wanted to do justice to Beverly and her work, and to make her proud. We all did our homework and worked really hard to be true to the characters. I think this movie is going to be a fun family experience.”
Ramona and Beezus stars Selena Gomez, Joey King, Ginnifer Goodwin, Bridget Moynahan, John Corbett.
Ramona and Beezus will be released in theaters July 23rd, 2010 by 20th Century Fox.
