We’re still pondering just how Disneyland ride The Matterhorn is going to make the transition from mini-rollercoaster to big screen event, but a writer has been tapped to bring it all full circle. So who’s taking the reins? Read on!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ehren Kruger (Scream 3, Scream 4, The Ring, The Ring 2, Skeleton Key) has landed a gig to work on Disney’s untitled explorers movie project.
First-time feature director Brian Beletic is attached to helm the pic, whose first draft was written by Jason Dean Hall. Justin Springer (Tron Legacy, Prom) is producing the project.
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.
The project formerly was associated with the Matterhorn ride at Disneyland, but its scope has since been broadened. The studio is hoping to keep part of the movie grounded in hardcore adventuring and has brought on Brain Farm Cinema, the boutique production house that is known for filming extreme sports, as production consultants.
More as it comes.
