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.”
