No, before you get too excited, this is not a re-imagining of the old TV movie of the week of the same name which features some of the late great Stan Winston’s amazing monster effects. We’re talking an entirely different property.

According to Variety, writing duo David Elliot and Paul Lovett (G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra) are the latest scribes to tackle a project that explores the world of gargoyles at Disney.

The two, whose credits also include Paramount’s Four Brothers, pitched an original take to the Mouse House that the studio is keen on exploring as a live action film. Lauren Shuler Donner (the X-Men franchise) will produce.

The project is not tied to Gargoyles, the popular animated TV series that Disney produced in the 1990s. Instead, it centers on a world in which the stony statues on buildings come to life. Elliot and Lovett would portray them as guardian angels for the cities in which they reside.

The project is being eyed as one that could turn into franchises at the megaplex — but also spin off a line of popular video games, merchandise, TV shows and theme park rides as well.

More soon!
