Exclusive: Disney has closed a deal for an untitled pitch to be written by Steve Pink and Jeff Morris, and produced by Infinitum Nihil’s Johnny Depp and Christi Dembrowski. The project is best described as a modern re-imagining of Don Quixote. Depp has long been intrigued with that character, and at one time was attached to the Quixote film that Terry Gilliam has tried to make. Pink and Morris met working on True Memoirs Of An International Assassin, a script that Morris wrote and which made the Black List, and to which Pink remains attached as director. For Screen Gems, Pink just wrapped directing Sexual Perversity In Chicago, an adaptation of the David Mamet play that was previously turned into the film About Last Night. Pink and Morris will start writing immediately even as Pink, best known for directing Accepted and Hot Tub Time Machine, eyes as his possible next film Contractors. »
