Nancy Drew has been the heroine of young girls everywhere since the 1930s. Now the famous sleuth is returning to the silver screen for the first time since 2007. If the first trailer is any indication, Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase looks to be a refreshing origin story for the amateur detective.
After the death of his wife, Carson Drew decides to leave Chicago behind and make a fresh start with his daughter in River Heights. But for 16-year-old Nancy Drew, life in a small town is mighty dull. She longs for excitement, adventure, and the chance to make a difference. Nancy gets that opportunity when she is asked to help solve the ghostly activity at the Twin Elms mansion. Can she help explain the creaking footsteps, exploding lightbulbs and the ominous creature? Is it the handiwork of high-school bully Derek Barnes? Or is it possible that the ghost of original owner Malcolm Colfax is back for revenge? Recruiting her best friends George and Bess, along with local “mean girl” Helen, Nancy Drew is on the case! The iconic mystery solving teenager from the classic Nancy Drew books is back with an all-new movie in theaters March 15 from Warner Bros.! Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase is Co-Produced by Ellen DeGeneres, and the film stars Sophia Lillis (IT and “Sharp Objects”), Sam Trammell (“True Blood” and “This is Us”), and Linda Lavin (“The Good Wife” and Alice), and follows Nancy Drew in her new town, making new friends and on a mission to solve the case!
