Drake Bell Hints That Nickelodeon May Make A Third "Drake & Josh" Movie

Huff Post Teen is reporting in the following article that Nickelodeon Star Drake Bell ("The Amanda Show", "Drake & Josh", the live-action "The Fairly OddParents" movies) has announced the very exciting Nickelodeon News in a special AMA (Ask Me Anything) he recently held on the social news and entertainment website Reddit on Friday 17th January 2014 of the potential development of a brand-new movie based on the popular Nickelodeon comedy series "Drake & Josh"! Bell said that a script for the film is "being written", expressed his enthusiasm about participating in and reprising his role of 'Drake Parker' for the movie, and encouraged fans to "blow up" social media around the idea!

"Drake and Josh" follows a pair of stepbrothers with very different personalities. In the series, Bell played charming, work-averse ladies' man Drake Parker who pulled his ever-responsible and sensitive stepbrother Josh Nichols (Josh Peck) into perpetual hi-jinks. Shared antics cement a growing brotherly bond, while perennial teen issues and dilemmas came to light. Miranda Cosgrove ("iCarly", "Yours, Mine & Ours", "School of Rock") co-starred as Drake and Josh's sister, Megan, a mischievous kid with a penchant for pulling practical jokes, especially on her older brothers. Nancy Sullivan ("The Amanda Show") and Jonathan Goldstein played their loving parents Audrey Parker and Walter Nichols. "Drake & Josh" was created by Nickelodeon TV show creator Dan Schneider, the creator, writer, and producer of hit Nickelodeon shows such as "iCarly", "Victorious", "The Amanda Show", "Zoey 101", "Kenan & Kel", "All That" (plus "What I Like About You", which Nickelodeon UK showed in the mid-2000's), and the Nickelodeon Movie "Good Burger". "Drake & Josh" originally ran on Nickelodeon between 2004 and 2008, and features two TV movies - "Drake & Josh Go Hollywood" and "Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh", and a TV special "Really Big Shrimp".

In his reddit AMA, Drake Bell tells fans that he and his fellow Nick Star Josh Peck instantly hit it off when they first met, stating "I've always thought he was hilarious!", that the two actors - now in their 20s - are still best buds, that his new album will be released in Spring 2014, and that he will be releasing his latest single soon!
