Crocodile Hunter Daughter, Bindi Irwin, To Star In ‘Nim’s Island 2′
Bindi Irwin is known the world over for being the daughter of Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter but is now making a name for herself as an actress as well as an animal lover. She's done this once already with 'Free Willy: Escape From Pirate's Cove' and is doing this again with 'Nim's Island 2.'
On her website Totally Bindi (??), it's been confirmed that she's set to star in 'Nim's Island 2: Return of the Pirates!' The original starred Abigail Breslin but instead of reprising her role it'll be taken over by Bindi. There's no word on when the movie will begin filming, but our hunch is that it'll start towards the later half of this year. Read up on what the whole story is about below:
After his cruise ship discovery of Nim and her beautiful island, Edmund tries to explain the wonder of his find to his classmates only to find that nobody will believe him. Frustrated, Edmund runs away and sneaks aboard the same fateful cruise ship as his last adventure and steals a row boat to make his way to Nim's Island. At the same time, Nim's world is turning upside down, as she's faced with the possibility of having to move to the mainland for her father to pursue his scientific research. Left alone for her last weekend on the island, Nim finds Edmund, as well as the pirate animal poachers that followed him! Soon, Nim and Edmund are in a stealth battle of cunning and wits to rescue her beloved sea lion Selkie. With Nim's know-how and Edmund's bravery, they are able to defeat the pirates and maybe even solve the scientific mystery that would allow Nim to stay on her beloved Island.
So yeah, this is actually happening. Not entirely sure that 'Nim's Island' needed a sequel (did anyone even see the original) but I guess if there were a girl to play someone at home with the animals on an island, it would be the girl whose dad dangled her brother over a live crocodile.
