Julie Andrews Is The Tooth Fairy

Julie Andrews, Stephen Merchant (“Extras”) and pro skateboarder Ryan Sheckler have joined Fox’s family comedy “Tooth Fairy” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The film centers on Derek Thompson (Dwayne Johnson), a minor-league hockey player whose nickname is the Tooth Fairy because of his ability to knock out opposing players’ teeth. Ashley Judd plays his girlfriend.

When he discourages a youngster’s hope, Derek is ordered to one week’s hard labor as a real tooth fairy, complete with wings, magic wand and frilly tutu. Along the way, he rediscovers his forgotten dreams.

Andrews will play Lily, a high-ranking, acerbic supervisor with the Tooth Fairy Department charged with overseeing Derek’s stint as a tooth fairy.

Filming will begin in October in Vancouver with Michael Lembeck directing a script by Lowell Ganz & Babaloo Mandel and Joshua Sternin & Jeffrey Ventimilia.
