She might still be waiting for a chance to properly bring Iris West to life on the stand-alone movie about the DCEU Flash, but Kiersey Clemons is filling the time with roles. She's in talks to play a key character in Disney's new Lady And The Tramp.

Charlie Bean, who directed The Lego Ninjago Movie, is overseeing the revised, live-action-meets-CGI take on the 1955 'toon, which saw a pampered cocker spaniel fall for a street smart mutt named Tramp.

Justin Theroux is aboard to voice Tramp, while Ashley Jensen will be Jackie, a gender-swapped version of Scottish Terrier Jock. Clemons is locking down a deal to be Darling, Lady's owner. She'll represent one of the few human characters in the film, and will be dealing with a lot of CG canines.

Disney is targeting this one for its new streaming service, which launches next year. As for Clemons' other work, she'll next be seen in indie music drama Hearts Beat Loud, due out on Friday this week.
