Nancy Drew World Premiere Saturday, June 9, 2007

WHAT: World Premiere of the family mystery adventure Nancy Drew, a Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, in association with Virtual Studios, a Jerry Weintraub Production and a Film by Andrew Fleming: starring Emma Roberts (Nickelodeon's "Unfabulous"), Josh Flitter ("The Greatest Game Ever Played"), Max Thieriot ("The Astronaut Farmer"), Rachael Leigh Cook ("She's All That") and Tate Donovan ("The O.C."). The film is directed by Andrew Fleming ("The In-Laws") and produced by Jerry Weintraub (the "Ocean's" franchise). The Nancy Drew screenplay is by Andrew Fleming and Tiffany Paulsen, from a story by Tiffany Paulsen, based on characters created by Carolyn Keene. Susan Ekins, Mark Vahradian and Benjamin Waisbren serve as executive producers, with Cherylanne Martin as co-producer.

On the red carpet, Supervisor Yvonne B. Burke, on behalf of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, will present a special proclamation naming June 9th as "Nancy Drew Day" in the county of Los Angeles. The presentation is part of Supervisor Burke's Reading Program at local schools in the Second Supervisorial District.

              Celebrity Arrivals: 3:00pm
              Screening: 4:00pm

WHERE:  Grauman's Chinese Theatre
                6925 Hollywood Blvd.

WHO: From the film: Emma Roberts, Tate Donovan, Rachael Leigh Cook, Max Thieriot, Josh Flitter, Laura Harring, Barry Bostwick and writer/director Andrew Fleming and producer Jerry Weintraub will be joined by celebrity guests to be announced. The premiere will be sponsored by Dooney & Bourke.

EMMA ROBERTS stars as the resourceful teen detective, who leaves her friendly hometown of River Heights for the West Coast and enrolls at Hollywood High School. There, her unique personal style immediately sets her apart from her self-absorbed, fast-living peers, especially reigning fashionistas Inga and Trish, who can't quite figure her out but know that everything about her is different--from her super-smarts and retro manners to her perfect picnic lunches and penny loafers.

Their less-than-warm reception might bother the average new girl in town, but not Nancy. She has more important things to think about--namely, a brand new mystery.

Even though she promised her worried Dad (TATE DONOVAN as Carson Drew) that she'd quit the "sleuthing" business, it isn't long before Nancy gets a lead on one of the greatest unsolved cases of all time: the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of famous actress Dehlia Draycott. It happens that the Drews are staying in the former Draycott Mansion, long reputed to be haunted and now a site where some very strange things have been happening.

How could she resist?...
