Kristen Bell set for ballet comedy Dance of the Mirlitons…

Kristen Bell has confirmed she will star in the upcoming indie comedy Dance of the Mirlitons.

The film follows a young, overweight ballerina and her fame-hungry mother ( played by Bell) who will do anything it takes to become a star.

Film producer Daniel Dubiecki hopes that Bell will bring the film to the attention of a wider audience:

“Kristen’s combination of comedic timing and authenticity will bring this character to the next level, and give this crossover appeal,” said Dubiecki.
