Scribe Ehren Kruger to tackle Disney's Matterhorn script
First it was PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and now it's MATTERHORN. Another Disney ride is being turned into a film. Brian Beletic is set to direct this as his first feature. Justin Springer (TRON: LEGACY) will produce.
The first draft of the script was written by Jason Dean Hall (SPREAD). Now Ehren Kruger (THE RING, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON) has been tapped to come in for the second draft.
The story centers on "five young adventure seekers -- an action sports guy, travel guide, cartographer, archeologist and escape artist -- who venture into the Alps for mysterious reasons and face Yetis that guard a secret." I hate that it sounds fun. As long as they pick a decent cast it probably won't end up as a massive turd.
Jon Favreau is still working on MAGIC KINGDOM, which he envisions as, “[The story for Magic Kingdom] is essentially a family caught in Disneyland, bringing all of the attractions to life. I really want to plumb the depths of the history of the park because it’s a place I love to go a few times a year.”
