Gazzam to Write Hawaiian Action Adventure for Disney


Joe Gazzam has been hired to write a new action adventure for Disney that is set in Hawaii and is in the vein of “Indiana Jones.” The story is said to include some supernatural elements and revolves around a gauntlet sent down from gods taken from Polynesian mythology.

The project will be developed by Ahmet Zappa’s Monsterfoot Productions and Scott Sanders Productions.

Gazzam will also write It Takes a Thief for Universal. Based on the TV series, the project will be a globe trotting action film. Will Smith was attached to an older script, but we’re hearing he’s still very much interested.

John Davis and Joe Singer will produce “Thief.”

Gazzam’s credits also include 21 Jump Street, Barbarella and Step Up Revolution.
