MGM has picked up the high-concept fantasy comedy spec script “Executive VP, David M. Murch’s Adventures in the Land of Zametherea” reports the trades.
Penned by Peter Speakman and Michael M.B. Galvin, the story centers on a boy who has the ability to travel to a magical land, but after coming home and telling his parents about his adventures, they have him committed.
Year later he is now a hard-charging, cold-hearted investment banker who must turn to his estranged 10-year-old son for help in saving that magical land.
Rick Alexander, Rick Benattar and Jim Wedaa are producing.
