Disney Falls For Hawaii-Set “Tiki” Tale

Disney Pictures is in early negotiations to pick up Ahmet Zappa and Michael Wilson’s spec script “Tiki” for Monsterfoot Productions and Scott Sanders Productions reports Heat Vision.

Though said to be inspired by Disneyland’s Enchanted Tiki Room, the film is NOT an adaptation of the attraction ala “Pirates of the Caribbean”. Rather it is an action-adventure set against the backdrop of Polynesian mythology.

The script is set in Hawaii and “takes in the culture’s rich reserve of unique gods and ghost stories”. Zappa and Wilson previously sold their script “Monster Witness Relocation Program” to Disney.
