Pete Candeland Is The “Stuff of Legend”

Pete Candeland is attached to direct while Shawn Christensen (“Abduction”) will script the comic adaptation “Stuff Of Legend” for Disney Pictures says Deadline.

The story follows a young boy in 1944 who is abducted by the Boogeyman into the closet realm known as The Dark. The boy’s puppy rallies his toys to follow his master on a rescue mission.

Transformed into large and agile creatures, the toys engage in a war with the Boogeyman’s forces. The film will be live-action but set in a CG world ala Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”.

Candeland created and directed the music videos for The Gorillaz and recently made a deal to adapt Disney theme-park ride “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride” into a live-action feature.
