It’s only been about 60 years since the last Nancy Drew movie, but according to Variety, WB is planning to cast Eric Roberts’ daughter in "Nancy Drew: The Mystery in Hollywood Hills."

Written by Tiffany Paulsen and inspired by the resoundingly popular book series by Carolyn Keene, "Drew" will be directed by "The In-Laws" helmer Andrew Fleming.

The story will focus on "Nancy Drew as she travels to L.A. with her father and stumbles upon evidence involving the long-unsolved death of a glamorous movie star. Nancy’s practical nature and resourcefulness are put to the test when dealing with the self-indulgent world of Hollywood.

"Warners made four ‘Nancy Drew’ movies in the late 1930s, all directed by William Clemens."
