Raven Symone takes on 'Adventures'
Though the Disney television series That's So Raven has run its course, the Walt Disney company isn't finished with its hitmaker, Raven Symone yet. Raven has signed an acting and producing deal with Disney and is now attached to star in a remake of the 80s classic "Adventures in Babysitting." You guys remember this one, right? The 1987 film, which starred Elisabeth Shue, follows the misadventures of a high school teen stuck babysitting a trio of trouble-makers for one night. We're sure Raven could spice this one up with that crazy comedic timing of hers.
The deal follows a successful nearly five year partnership between Raven and Disney. That's So Raven has been one of the Disney Channel's highest-rated shows for several seasons. Symone also struck gold on the network with the Cheetah Girls films based on the books written by Deborah Gregory. Raven stars in the upcoming Cheetah Girls 2 set to air on the Disney Channel this August.
