    Jon Favreau's ' Magic Kingdom' film

    the latest:

    Author Michael Chabon Eyed for Possible Trip to Disney's 'Magic Kingdom'

    The Pulitzer Prize-winning writer has talked to director Jon Favreau about a potential team-up.

    Pulitzer Prize-winning author and scriptwriter Michael Chabon may get the keys to Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

    Kingdom is the studio’s family adventure project set in its flagship theme park (and maybe even connect to other parks worldwide) that is being directed by Jon Favreau.

    Ron Moore, who revived the recent Battlestar Galactica TV series, wrote the initial draft but a new direction, as well as a new writer, were sought when Favreau came on board. Chabon has a good chance at being that writer.

    Chabon and Favreau have talked about the project and a potential team-up on Kingdom. No offer has been made and obviously meetings with Disney execs would need to take place.

    Chabon already has an in with Disney. The author worked on the studio’s high priority Snow White project titled Snow and the Seven as well as its upcoming adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs book series John Carter of Mars. He is also penning on the book for Broadway-bound Dumbo musical.

    Michael Chabon Closes Deal to Write
    'Magic Kingdom' for Disney

    Jon Favreau will direct the project,

    set in Disney's flagship theme park.

    Michael Chabon has been tapped to write Magic Kingdom, Disney’s family adventure project that is being directed by Jon Favreau.

    Heat Vision first reported the author's possible involvement in March, when the Pulitzer Prize-winning author initially talked with Favreau about it but before any meetings with Disney had taken place.

    Since then, deal-making quietly got under way and an agreement closed this week.

    Chabon will now begin tackling a story whose details are being kept under wraps but is set in Disney’s flagship theme park and may even be connected to other parks worldwide.

    Ron Moore, who revived the recent Battlestar Galactica TV series, wrote the initial draft but Kingdom re-routed into a different direction when Favreau came on board.

    Strike Entertainment is producing Magic Kingdom.

    Chabon is a big Disney aficionado and spent time at the Anaheim park with Favreau.

    Re: Jon Favreau's ' Magic Kingdom' film

    Why not call it Disneyland? And is the movie actually being filmed in the park? or are they going to recreate the park somehow? As long as they use the right castle I will be happy (no more filming in DLR and using the WDW castle)
    Trips coming up:

    May 22-26th
    July 13th-18th
    November 19th-25th
