Zach Galifianakis is the first star to sign onto the live-action Lilo & Stitch movie. THR announced the news about the Hangover actor yesterday. No word on who is playing, but it is most likely Pleakley. Dean Fleischer Camp, the director of Marcel the Shell With Shoes On, will helm the film. There is still a search on who will play Lilo and her sister Nani. The 2002 animated feature made $273,144,151 globally. It was written and directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois. Recently, we reported that DeBlois is directing a live-action How To Train Your Dragon movie. Stay tuned for more.
Lilo is a lonely Hawaiian girl who adopts a small ugly “dog,” whom she names Stitch. Stitch would be the perfect pet if he weren’t, in reality, a genetic experiment who has escaped from an alien planet and crash-landed on Earth. Through her love, faith, and unwavering belief in ohana, the Hawaiian concept of family, Lilo helps unlock Stitch’s heart and gives him the ability to care for someone else.
