Michael Chabon Pens “Magic Kingdom”

Pulitzer Prize-winning author and scribe Michael Chabon (“Spider-Man 2,” “John Carter of Mars”) has been hired to pen the script for Disney’s family adventure “Magic Kingdom” says Heat Vision.

Back in March, Chabon initially talked with the film’s director Jon Favreau about it before any meetings with Disney had taken place. After some quiet deal making, an agreement closed this week.

Ron Moore (“Battlestar Galactica”) penned the initial draft which required a re-write due to a different direction being taken when Favreau came on board.
