Disney's "Enchanted" Sequel Still Alive

29 September 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A new report suggests that Disney Pictures is moving forward again on an "Enchanted" sequel and even has a new title for it - "Disenchanted".

Collider broke the news, saying that's the working title for the film which is now "in the process of punching up the script with the hopes that it will be in greenlight-ready shape very soon."

It has been eight years since the first film and the studio has been trying to get a follow-up going for a good portion of that period.

At last report J. David Stem and David N. Weiss ("Shrek 2," "The Smurfs") had signed on to write the screenplay and Anne Fletcher ("The Proposal") remains attached to direct. No word if Amy Adams, James Marsden or Susan Sarandon would return. »
