Favreau To Transform Magic Kingdom
Director JON FAVREAU has signed up to bring Disney's latest theme park attraction to the big screen - he's working on a movie based on The Magic Kingdom.
Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride spawned a hugely popular film franchise starring Johnny Depp, while The Haunted Mansion amusement was turned into a 2003 movie with Eddie Murphy.
Bosses at the company now hope to achieve similar success with a picture based on The Magic Kingdom, which is part of the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
Iron Man moviemaker Favreau has stepped up to take charge of the family film, directing and helping out with the script, according to Variety.
