Jon Favreau to Enter the Magic Kingdom
November 10, 2010
Jon Favreau is now attached to Magic Kingdom
, a family feature that takes place in a fantasy version of Disneyland, reports Variety
Favreau, currently gearing up to release his Cowboys & Aliens
with Universal next summer, will helm the project for Disney. Currently without a script (though a version by Ronald Moore was allegedly written and shelved), the project is being compared to Night at the Museum
, treating the theme park in the same way that museums have been treated for that franchise.
Separately from Magic Kingdom
, Disney is filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
, the fourth film in the franchise, The Haunted Mansion
with Guillermo del Toro, Tomorrowland
and Jungle Cruise
, all of which are based on existing Disney theme park rides.
