Disney acquires spec script for live-action Prince Charming comedy

Disney has another movie re-imagining of a classic fairy tale in the works. According to Variety, the studio has picked up a spec script from BIG MOMMAS: LIKE FATHER LIKE SON screenwriter Matt Fogel for a live-action Prince Charming movie, and Mandeville Films and Tripp Vinson are attached to produce. There aren't any plot details or any word on which prince the film might follow, however sources say the story will be told from the perspective of his brother, who has yet to live up to the family name. So what, the Charming sibling's family nags him because he doesn't make out with sleeping princesses?

The comedy does sound a little absurd, but I think a lot is going to depend on the tone of the script and the execution of the material. It could potentially be a fun movie if done right, perhaps in the same vein as as ENCHANTED or INTO THE WOODS. I know the latter is based on the Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine Broadway musical, but you get my point.

Do you have any interest at all in checking out the planned film, and who would you want to play Prince Charming and his brother?

So Disney won't front the cash for a Tron sequel, but they think this is a good idea? I'm at a loss for words.

I'm down if they cast James Franco as the prince and Danny McBride as the underachieving brother.

I won't have an opinion until I learn more about it. By the way, is it a fact that it'll be the prince from CINDERELLA? Isn't "Charming" the name all the fairy tale princes get?

It's all in the execution

but the fact that this script is from the schmuck who brought us BIG MOMMAS: LIKE FATHER LIKE SON doesn't fill me with confidence. There's a good story in there, if they take it in an ENCHANTED sort of direction.
