Jon Favreau to Enter the Magic Kingdom


Jon Favreau is now attached to Magic Kingdom, a family feature that takes place in a fantasy version of Disneyland, reports Variety.

Favreau, currently gearing up to release his Cowboys & Aliens with Universal next summer, will helm the project for Disney. Currently without a script (though a version by Ronald Moore was allegedly written and shelved), the project is being compared to Night at the Museum, treating the theme park in the same way that museums have been treated for that franchise.

Separately from Magic Kingdom, Disney is filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth film in the franchise, The Haunted Mansion with Guillermo del Toro, Tomorrowland and Jungle Cruise, all of which are based on existing Disney theme park rides.
