Sharon McGuire, the director of the Bridget Jones films, will helm the new movie. Kari Granlund and Melissa Stack co-wrote the script.

Godmothered follows a young and unskilled fairy godmother (Bell), who tracks down a young girl whose request for help was ignored. The character discovers the girl is now a grown woman (Fisher) with different needs.

Bell confirmed her casting in a tweet Thursday.

"So excited to play a fairy godmother," she wrote, adding several hearts and a fairy emoji.

Godmothered is being developed by Disney's live-action team, run by motion picture production president Sean Bailey. Justin Springer and Ivan Reitman's Montecito Pictures will produce, with production to begin later this month.

Bell recently starred in the Amazon film Brittany Runs a Marathon. She is known for playing Jillian Belk on the Comedy Central series Workaholics and Dixie on the HBO series Eastbound & Down.
