Walt Disney Pictures has acquired an original fantasy comedy called Happy Birthday, Deadline reports. Written by Entourage writers Jeremy Miller and Dan Cohn, the film is being planned as a live action feature film.
Happy Birthday follows a man who, dreading his 40th birthday, vows never to have another birthday again. When he unexpectedly has his wish granted, the man finds that, in the absence of new birthdays, old ones are coming back to him and he's reliving some of his very worst.
Chris and Jim Whitaker are attached to produce, the latter of whom was a producer on Disney's similarly magical The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
