Jon Favreau found “Magic Kingdom” collaborator?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Jon Favreau’s “Magic Kingdom,” the picture he’s expected to move on to now that “Cowboys and Aliens” is in the can, may have secured a Pulitzer Prize-winning magician for its scripting duties.

Michael Chabon, author of “Wonder Boys” and “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay,” is on the verge of being hired to punch up a Ron Moore treatment that helped lure Favreau to the project, THR reports. “Kingdom” is a family adventure in the mold of “Night at the Museum” or “Zathura” that’s set in the Disney theme park of the title.

Chabon and Favreau “have talked about the project and a potential team-up” but “no offer has been made and obviously meetings with Disney execs would need to take place,” writes THR.

But Chabon has multiple projects in the works at Disney, including the “Snow White” riff “Snow and the Seven” and Andrew Stanton’s adaptation of “John Carter of Mars.” Chabon also wrote the book for the upcoming “Dumbo” musical, soon to be on Broadway.
