It's been four years since we heard about Disney developing a sequel to their fairytale comedy Enchanted starring Oscar nominee Amy Adams. And it's been even longer since the 2007 film hit theaters, but that's not stopping Disney from keeping their hopes for Enchanted 2 high as Deadline reports a pair of writers have been hired to script the film. David N. Weiss & J. David Stem are set to script the film, and with films like Are We There Yet?, Daddy Day Camp and The Smurfs in their past, that doesn't inspire much confidence. But there's a glimmer of hope as the duo also scripted Shrek 2, which is a solid sequel. Read on! It's not clear who will all be returning from the first film, but one would hope that Amy Adams is a high priority, and there probably shouldn't be a sequel without her unless it focuses on another princess. »

J. David Stem and David N. Weiss ("Daddy Day Camp," "Are We There Yet," "Shrek 2") will be writing the script, and Anne Fletcher ("The Guilt Trip," "27 Dresses," "Step Up") will direct. How could this go wrong?!
There's no word on whether or not Adams, who has wowed audiences with dramatic performances in "American Hustle," "Her," "The Master," among others, will reprise her role as Giselle, and, well, why would she? Her career is so crazy good that it would be silly to take a break from her dramatic work to sing for her supper in a sequel.

If you've been looking forward to sequels for G.I. Joe and Disney's Enchanted, then there's some good news coming your way. Progress on the sequels are moving forward as the studios have now hired writers for each project. Come inside for all the details and see who'll be penning the scripts!
I know, these properties have almost nothing in common, but considering they're both sequels, both of which just hired writers, I felt it better to lump them together into one article than a pair of smaller ones. So let's get to it.
First of all, Deadline dropped the news that many Disney fans are sure to be excited about, as one of their most underrated films (according to many) is finally getting a sequel. J. David Stem and David N. Weiss have been hired to write the script for Enchanted 2 which is expected to bring back some of the »

It's been seven years since Amy Adams first portrayed princess Giselle in Enchanted. Now Disney is finally going to work on that sequel we've all been waiting for. The studio has hired writing duo David Stem and David N. Weiss (Smurfs 2, Shrek 2, Daddy Day Camp) to pen the script to the overdue followup.
Anne Fletcher (The Guilt Trip, The Proposal) is set to direct the sequel. However, there's no word on whether Adams will reprise her role as Princess Giselle. As a matter of fact, we don't know if any of the original cast members – which include Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel, Rachel Covey, and Susan Sarandon – will return.
In 2007, Enchanted's worldwide gross was more than $340 million. The movie earned numerous Oscar nominations and Golden Globe nominations.

The writers of The Smurfs movies have been hired to script Enchanted 2...
We figured this one was long dead, but it seems as though Disney has just decided to breathe fresh life into the sequel to the wonderful Enchanted.
The first movie was released back in 2007, and starred Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden. Which of those will be returning is unclear, but we at least now know that a pair of writers have been assigned the long-mooted Enchanted 2 job. The writers concerned are J David Stern and David N Weiss, the pair who wrote the scripts to the two Smurfs movies so far. They also wrote, er, Daddy Day Camp (that'd be the sequel, with Cuba Gooding Jr). On the upside, they also penned the excellent Rugrats In Paris.
That "Enchanted" sequel you've been waiting for is finally taking shape. Disney has hired screenwriters David Stem and David N. Weiss ("Smurfs 2," "Shrek 2," "Daddy Day Camp") to pen the script for the belated followup, which is set to be directed by Anne Fletcher ("The Guilt Trip," "The Proposal"). The news was broken by Deadline. Amy Adams starred in the Kevin Lima-directed first film as a fairytale princess come to life in modern-day New York City. With songs by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz, the film rocketed to a worldwide grosses of more than $340 million and earned three nominations for Best Original Song at the 2008 Oscars (Adams also received a Golden Globe nod for Best Actress). Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel and Susan Sarandon were also in the cast. There's no word yet on whether Adams or any of the original cast members will »

Four years after it was first announced in February 2010, Walt Disney Pictures is moving forward with Enchanted 2, bringing on The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2 writers J. David Stem and David N. Weiss to pen the script.
Our first report revealed that Jessie Nelson (Because I Said So) was writing the sequel, but it isn't known if J. David Stem and David N. Weiss are starting over from scratch, or working from the first draft. No story details have been released.
It isn't clear yet if original Enchanted stars Amy Adams and James Marsden will reprise their roles as Giselle and Prince Edward. The original story centered on Giselle, a fairy tale princess who is sent to the real world by an evil queen, where she meets and falls for a »
