Michael Chabon to Write MAGIC KINGDOM

     June 18, 2011

Michael Chabon May Pen Script for Jon Favreau's MAGIC KINGDOM slice

It took a few months to cross all of the t’s and dot all of the i’s, but Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael Chabon has finally closed the deal to write Disney’s upcoming family adventure pic, Magic Kingdom. Back in March, we reported that Chabon was in talks to pen the project for director Jon Favreau and now, three months later, Heat Vision is confirming the news. While there aren’t a ton of plot details available for Magic Kingdom, we do know that the film will take place in the Disney theme park. Per the report, it may also integrate other theme parks on a global scale (don’t get your hopes up, Six Flags…you’re probably not included). In addition to landing Magic Kingdom, Chabon was also in the headlines earlier this week when Darren Aronofsky signed on to direct the pilot for his HBO period drama, Hobgoblin.
