Disney Developing It's A Small World Movie with Jon Turteltaub

17 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In my opinion, It's A Small World is seriously the most boring ride at the Disneyland theme parks, but it is also the thing nightmares are made out of. I love going to Disneyland, but that is one ride that I just loath. I know not everyone will agree with me, but I've just hated it since I was a kid. The boringness of it though won't stop Disney from adapting it into a movie!

According to Deadline the studio has hired National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub to direct the movie. I wonder how many times they will play that god-awful theme song throughout the course of the movie. 

The idea was pitched to the studio by Jared Stern, who will also write the script for the movie. He previously worked on films such as Wreck-It Ralph, The Internship, and The Lego Movie 2. He will also produce the film alongside Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, »

Disney announces It’s A Small World to become a movie

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the oldest and most famous theme park rides ever is set to become a movie. Disney announced yesterday that it would be developing the movie with Jon Turtletaub (National Treasure) signing on as director, Jared Stern (Wreck-It Ralph) to write the script and Dan Lin (The Lego Movie) producing. The announcement comes on the 50th anniversary of the ride’s initial launch at Anaheim. I’m sensing franchise potential here!

Turtletaub’s most recent film Last Vegas grossed over $134 million worldwide and Deadline are reporting that Disney are looking to It’s A Small World as a possible franchise successor to Pirates of the Caribbean which totalled in approximately $3.7 billion. It’s hard to imagine that the movie adaptation of a musical attraction featuring tiny people from around the globe would come anywhere close to Pirates success. Turtletaub is currently working on a third National Treasure film with »

'National Treasure' Director Set to Helm Disney's 'It's a Small World'

20 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After finding success at Disney with The National Treasure franchise, even though development on a third film in the franchise has been stagnant, director Jon Turteltaub is staying comfortable at the House of Mouse with a new project. Deadline has word that the man who was also at the helm of Disney's Cool Runnings, The Kid and The Sorcerer's Apprentice will now direct It's a Small World, an adaptation of the staple theme park attraction with an infectious song that is celebrating it's 50th anniversary. Again, this sounds silly, but if Pirates of the Caribbean can turn into a billion dollar franchise, anything can happen. In what seems like an effort to capitalize on the success of The Lego Movie, Disney has landed that film's producer Dan Lin to produce this project, but we hope this won't try to lazily replicate that film. Between this news and last night's revelation »

'It's A Small World' Finds A Director

"It's A Small World, After All! It's A Small World, After All!"

Remember when people initially chuckled at the idea of Disney turning its Pirates of The Caribbean ride into a movie? I'd say that one worked out for them. Then they did it again with their Haunted Mansion attraction. That one? Not so much. It turned a modest profit, but it didn't lead to much else. Well, now Disney is at it again. They're planning a feature film adaptation of their It's A Small World ride. That's not all. They've hired a director, and they intend this to be a franchise.

Jon Turteltaub, he of the National Treasure movies and last year's sleeper hit Last Vegas, has been tapped to helm It's A Small World. Deadline is reporting that he's also producing the film, along with Dan Lin of The Lego Movie. The move makes sense considering Turteltaub »

Disney Planning ‘It’s a Small World’ Movie from ‘National Treasure’ Director

20 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Walt Disney Pictures released two movies based on its theme park attractions in 2003; one of them, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, was an immense hit that gave rise to a billion-dollar franchise, while the other, The Haunted Mansion, was far less successful – critically and financially – but still grossed a tidy sum at the box office (over $180 million worldwide).

The Mouse House has since attempted multiple times to bring another of its popular theme park rides to the big screen, with It’s a Small World being the latest subject. Disney’s musical boat ride – accompanied by the famous Sherman Brothers’ tune that’s either charmingly or irritatingly ...

On the 50th anniversary of Disney's "It's a Small World" theme park attraction, the studio has decided to move forward with a movie based on the ride.

"It's A Small World" Ride Becomes A Film

23 April 2014 12:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"National Treasure" director Jon Turteltaub has signed on to helm a feature film based on the Disneyland ride "It's a Small World".

"The Lego Movie 2" scribe Jared Stern will write the screenplay after reportedly pitching a potential franchise-creating take to Disney.

The attraction has been around since the 1960s and consists of a boat ride past animated figures frolicking in miniature settings of many lands in what's called a "salute to the children of the world". It's also known for its catchy theme song of the same name sung by a choir of animatronic children.

The project is expected to take some time to come together. Dan Lin is producing.

There’s Going to Be an It’s A Small World Movie

22 April 2014 8:26 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Deadline reports that Disney has tapped National Treasure series helmer Jon Turteltaub to direct a film adaption of their "It's A Small World" ride, which is being envisioned as the start of a possible franchise for the studio. Disney has had luck with ride-inspired films in the past — namely, Pirates of the Caribbean — but we have to say, "It's A Small World" doesn't really provide much to work with in the way of narrative momentum. Still, if you enjoy long, slow, musical boat rides accompanied by animatronic dolls embodying national stereotypes, you will maybe enjoy at least the first of these movies. »

Disney is turning 'It's a Small World' into a movie now

22 April 2014 7:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Disney is bringing another theme park ride to the big screen. Suspiciously coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the "It's a Small World" attraction at Anaheim's Disneyland theme park, Deadline is reporting that the studio will now be turning the popular musical ride into a feature-length film. Director Jon Turtletaub ("Last Vegas," "National Treasure") is on board to helm the adaptation from a script by Jared Stern ("The Internship," "The Watch"), who pitched the idea to the studio.  Not surprisingly, Disney is viewing the film as the potential start of another mega-grossing franchise a la "Pirates of the Caribbean," which has brought in over $3.7 billion worldwide (with a fifth entry potentially on the way). A film based on The Disneyland attraction "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" is also reportedly in the works. How do you feel about "It's a Small World: The Movie"? Vote in the poll below to let us know. »

Jerry Bruckheimer Gives National Treasure 3 And Bad Boys 3 Updates

22 April 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The sheer number of projects that producer Jerry Bruckheimer has at any given time is baffling, and frankly, it’s surprising that the man gets anything done. He oversees several long-running film franchises and TV shows, most of which have sequels in the works. Last week, he offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, and now we have news about two more: Bad Boys 3 and National Treasure 3.

The fact that a third Bad Boys film hasn’t happened yet is pretty surprising, considering that the first one grossed $141 million in 1995, and its follow up in 2003 brought home $273 million. It’s not like director Michael Bay is against sequels, and he certainly likes to make money, so why haven’t we seen a third film now that we’re 11 years past the last installment?

According to Bruckheimer, all of »

Jon Turteltaub Directing It's A Small World Movie For Disney

22 April 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

When the practice of turning theme park rides into movies was freshly sparked with Pirates Of The Caribbean, we’d often joke that Disney was now achingly close to adapting sugary, singing, animatronic nightmare fuel It’s A Small World. We really have to learn to keep our gobs shut, because the Mouse House now has National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub in charge of the project.The blame – or, depending how you see it, credit – for the new movement lies at the feet of The Internship/The Watch writer Jared Stern, who pitched the concept and will write the script. It’s early days for the idea and Deadline’s report carries no details on what the film would be about, but we’re guessing it’ll involve a lot of warbling characters that must unite to, oh, save the world from a terrible racist menace or something while singing »

It's A Small World Movie In The Works At Disney, National Treasure Director To Helm

22 April 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise proved to the Walt Disney Company that there is big money in making film adaptations of their most popular theme park attractions, so they are getting ready to try it again. The studio has now begun work on It's A Small World, a new movie based on the multi-cultural themed ride found in parks around the world, and they have hired director Jon Turteltaub to helm it. Turteltaub has a long history of the studio filled with some big hits - including the National Treasure series - but his last effort for Disney was a bit of a disaster: The Sorcerer's Apprentice cost a whopping $150 million, but wound up being a huge flop domestically. The movie was somewhat saved by the foreign grosses, but certainly not enough to make the film considered successful. The filmmaker had some better luck with his most recent film. »

Disney Planning Movie Based on ‘It’s a Small World’

22 April 2014 5:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney is ramping up a movie version of its venerable “It’s a Small World” theme park ride with Jon Turteltaub directing.

Jared Stern is writing the script and will produce with Turteltaub and “The Lego Movie” producer Dan Lin.

The ride was created by Wed Enterprises and debuted at the New York World’s Fair in 1964. It was rebuilt after the fair, installed in Disneyland and now operates as a boat ride in five Disney parks.

“It’s a Small World” features over 300 audio-animatronic dolls from all over the world singing the upbeat title song, which promotes peace and understanding. The song was written by Disney’s staff songwriters Robert S. Sherman and Richard B. Sherman after  Walt Disney had told the brothers to craft a tune that could be easily translated into multiple languages.

Turteltaub recently directed “Last Vegas” for CBS Films and the two “National Treasure” movies for Disney. »

Jerry Bruckheimer Gives Update on 'Bad Boys 3' and 'National Treasure 3'

22 April 2014 1:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, producer Jerry Bruckheimer offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, but those are just two of his highly-anticipated projects that are currently in development. During a new interview with Collider, the producer offered updates on a pair of sequels, National Treasure 3 and Bad Boys 3.

Both projects have been in development for several years, even though their predecessors, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets ($457 million worldwide) and 2003's Bad Boys II ($273 million worldwide) fared quite well at the box office. However, it still may be quite some time before we see either of these sequels in theaters.

Bad Boys 3 has been in the works for over 10 years, with Sony recently hiring screenwriter David Guggenheim (Safe House) to work on the script back in December. Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that the project's real problem has to deal with the timing being off, »

Sequel News: Check Out Updates for 'Bad Boys 3,' 'Batman vs. Superman,' 'Resident Evil 6' and More

22 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Last week, Jerry Bruckheimer was busy talking about sequels to Beverly Hills Cop, Top Gun and Pirates of the Caribbean. This week, he tackles some of his other projects, most notably the Bad Boys sequel he keeps teasing us with, as well as another National Treasure movie.  Bruckheimer assures Collider that both films are going to happen. The hold up with Bad Boys 3 appears to be one of scheduling. “It’s so funny because we’ll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will [Smith] is off doing two movies. And then, Will will come back and be real excited about it, and Sony will say, ‘Well, maybe it’s not the time for this.’ And then, Ride Along came out and was a big hit, and now they’re all excited to make the movie, but...
