    "The Rookie" writer sells pitch to Walt Disney Pictures

    Disney buys pitch from Mike Rich

    'Rookie' writer sells true 'Parent Trap'-ish story

    Walt Disney Pictures has acquired an untitled pitch by Mike Rich.

    Studio and writer were vague on the idea, allowing only that it's based on a true story with elements of "Sleepless in Seattle" and The Parent Trap."

    Deal brings Rich back to Disney, where he scripted "The Rookie" and "Secretariat," about the 1973 Triple Crown-winning race horse. Rich's last credit was "The Nativity Story."

    Re: "The Rookie" writer sells pitch to Walt Disney Pictures

    He sold bitumen or resin to Disney? And why?

    This was a classic opportunity for traditional Variety-speak, though, and they missed it. "Rich Pitches Pitch to Mouse House" would have been the ideal one. Granted, it's no "Parker Preps Prod for Pitt Preem" but it'll do.
