'Game of Thrones' Writer to Pen Live-Action 'Sword in the Stone'

21 July 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Disney has added yet another beloved cartoon classic to its roster of upcoming live-action remakes: The Sword in the Stone.

Variety reports that Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman will pen the updated take on the 1963 film. Originally written by Bill Peet — and based on T. H. White's book of the same name — The Sword in the Stone told King Arthur's fictionalized origin story as an orphan who proves himself worthy of royalty as he does the impossible by pulling a sword from a stone.

A 'Sword in the Stone' Live-Action Remake Is Coming, 'Game of Thrones' Writer Attached

21 July 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In an unlikely mashup, Disney flick "The Sword in the Stone" is getting a facelift courtesy of "Game of Thrones": Bryan Cogman, a writer and producer for the hit HBO show, is set to pen the screenplay for a live-action remake of the animated classic.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cogman will work with Disney and producer Brigham Taylor (who's also producing the live-action "Jungle Book" remake) on the project, which is in the early development stages. Cogman himself also commented on the news on Twitter, sharing his elation and revealing that he's already very familiar with the source material.

"I have cherished both the novel and 1963 film since childhood," Cogman wrote, referencing the movie and the T.H. White book of the same name on which it's based. "Hugely excited and honored to be working on this."

The writer also shared a snap of himself attempting to pull a »

Now Disney's doing a live action Sword In The Stone too

20 July 2015 11:11 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Disney enlists some help from Game Of Thrones to bring Sword In The Stone back to the big screen...

I think we can safely conclude by now that Disney reckons it's onto something with taking its animated classics and making live action spins on them. Some more directly than others.

Last week's revelation was that it was working on an Aladdin origins movie called Genies, with the idea being that that would lead to a full live action Aladdin feature. This week? It's Sword In The Stone that's been added to the roster.

The 1963 animated movie told the story of a young King Arthur, who Merlin is teaching the ropes to. Disney has enlisted Bryan Cogman, one of the writers and producers on Game Of Thrones, to pen a screenplay for the film. Brigham Taylor, who's also overseeing the live action take on The Jungle Book, will be producing the movie. »

'Sword in the Stone' Live-Action Movie Planned at Disney

20 July 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a week after Disney announced a live-action version of Aladdin, The Hollywood Reporter reveals the studio is also developing a live-action remake of The Sword in the Stone. Disney has hired Bryan Cogman, a writer and producer on HBO's Game of Thrones, to write the screenplay. Brigham Taylor, a former Disney production executive, is serving as a producer on the project.

The original animated movie The Sword in the Stone was released in 1963, the studio's last animated movie to debut before the death of Walt Disney himself in 1966. The story is loosely inspired by T.H. White's novel of the same name, which was later added into his multi-book King Arthur series The Once and Future King. The plot centers on a young King Arthur who begins training with the wizard Merlin, leading to Arthur pulling the enchanted sword from the stone to become the king of England. »

'Game of Thrones' Writer Penning Live Action 'Sword In The Stone' For Disney

20 July 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In case it wasn't clear already with live action projects in the works based around "The Jungle Book," "Beauty and the Beast," "Mulan," "Tinker Bell," "Dumbo," "Winnie the Pooh," "Night on Bald Mountain," "Prince Charming," and "Aladdin," Disney is raiding their vaults hard to find new ways to exploit old classics. At least they haven't touched my beloved "Robin Hood" yet. However, they have taken another childhood treasure out to give it a new coat of paint. THR reports that "Game Of Thrones" scribe Brian Cogman will pen "Sword In The Stone" for the studio. Presumably, he'll bring his skill of telling tales about swords and castles with less bloodbath-y elements. There's no word on what kind of story approach he'll be taking with the King Arthur and Merlin saga, but I'd wager the pitch at the board meeting at Disney went something like this: "It's like »

‘Sword in the Stone’ Live-Action Remake in Development With ‘Game of Thrones’ Writer

20 July 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Continuing their strategy of reimagining animated classics into live-action movies, Disney is developing a “Sword in the Stone” movie with “Game of Thrones” writer Bryan Cogman penning the script, Variety has confirmed.

Brigham Taylor will produce the film.

The original toon was based loosely on T.H. White’s novel of the same name, which ultimately became part of the author’s multi-book King Arthur fantasy, “The Once and Future King.”

The 1963 animated pic followed a 12-year-old orphan named Arthur who became king after removing a sword from an anvil in London.

Cogman cut his teeth as one of the writers on HBO’s hit fantasy drama “Game of Thrones,” though audiences can expect this project to be on the lighter side.

The scribe tweeted a photo of himself pulling the “Sword in the Stone” at Disneyland with the caption “research.”

Disney’s The Sword In The Stone Getting Live-Action Redo

20 July 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Could have called this one – as Disney plumbs the depths of its animated catalog in order to maximize the number of live-action remakes and re-imaginings it can send into theaters, 1963 animated fantasy The Sword in the Stone has been anointed as the latest title to receive an update.

Bryan Cogman, who has written episodes of HBO’s high fantasy epic Game of Thrones, will pen the script for the project, which Brigham Taylor (Disney’s upcoming Jungle Book remake) is attached to produce.

The Sword in the Stone occupies a bittersweet place in Disney history, as it was the latest animated offering to be released before Walt Disney’s death. Centering on a young King Arthur as he learned the responsibilities of being a monarch from wizened sorcerer Merlin, it was commercially successful and received solid reviews upon its release, despite drawing nowhere near the acclaim of some other Disney titles. »

I don't even know how to introduce these stories anymore. It seems every week or so, Disney tosses another live action movie onto their slate tied to one of their classic films, and the list has grown to be quite staggering. "The Jungle Book," "Beauty and the Beast," "Mulan," "Tinker Bell," "Dumbo," "Winnie the Pooh," "Night on Bald Mountain," and "Prince Charming," are all brewing and now another is here, and sure to cause some heartache.

Disney is developing a live-action Aladdin prequel about Genies

15 July 2015 8:07 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Disney is planning to explore the backstory of Aladdin's lamp-enslaved Genie in a new live-action movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Genies will serve as a prequel delving into how Genie became the bearer of three wishes.

The comedy adventure is being penned by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, with Tripp Vinson on board to produce.

Genies is in the early stages of development and is expected to come ahead of a live-action retelling of the main Aladdin story as well.

The Genie was voiced by Robin Williams in Disney's animated movies, with the exception of 1994's The Return of Jafar when Dan Castellaneta temporarily stepped in.

Disney has several other live-action remakes in the pipeline too, including The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, Winnie the Pooh, Mulan, Pinnochio and a tale about Prince Charming. »

'Aladdin' Live-Action Prequel Movie Happening at Disney

15 July 2015 5:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney is digging deep into its well of animated movies, putting a live action prequel to the 1992 blockbuster Aladdin into development, entitled Genies. The studio has brought on screenwriters Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th) to write the screenplay for the project, described as a "live-action comedy adventure" by The Hollywood Reporter. Disney is already planning to have this project, still in early development, spawn a live action remake of Aladdin itself.

The original Aladdin movie is based on a centuries-old Arabic folk tale about a lowly street kid who finds a magical lamp with a genie (Robin Williams), who grants him three wishes, while the nefarious Jafar tries to obtain this lamp to gain power over the land. The prequel Genies is said to focus on the realm of these magical entities, and how Aladdin's particular genie becomes enslaved in this lamp. Aladdin took in an »

Disney Developing Live-Action ‘Aladdin’ Prequel

Disney is developing “Genies,” a live-action comedy prequel to its 1992 animated hit “Aladdin.”

Tripp Vinson is on board to produce “Genies” through his Vinson Films banner. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift are writing the script for the prequel, which will center on a genie trapped in Aladdin’s lamp.

Disney Moves Ahead With Live Action Movie About Prince Charming's Brother

7 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If there is one character in the fairy tale canon that has demanded to be explored, where audiences have craved a compelling and complex backstory, it's that of Prince Charming. Actually, wait, nobody has asked for that at all. Ever. But Disney has an interesting twist, with a new project padding out their now ludicrously large live action slate. THR reports that the mouse house is moving ahead with Prince Charming movie penned by Matt Fogel ("Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son"), with The Guardian adding that this revisionist story actually isn't about the Prince, but his brother, and that it will be a comedy. Okay, I have to admit, I didn't see that coming.

Disney Planning Live Action Prince Charming Movie

7 July 2015 3:18 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Disney’s current run of adapting their animated classics as live action has been gaining steam as of late, with the likes of Maleficent and Cinderella already under their belts, and The Jungle Book, Winnie the Pooh, Beauty and the Beast, and Mulan all on the horizon. Now, the House of Mouse are looking to add a Prince Charming movie to their live action slate, with the studio acquiring a spec script from Matt Folger that is said to provide a comedic take on the character. It’s incredibly early days on the project at the moment, and with the character appearing across multiple fairy tales and contemporary adaptions, there is no no idea what version of the character will appear (John Madden already played the character in Cinderella, but it’s unlikely he’ll reprise the role). Rumours even suggest that the movie will concern itself with Charming’s »

Prince Charming is looking to follow the success of Maleficent, as Disney picks up a screenplay for the movie...

It's clearly early days for the project. We don't know yet who's going to be directing, »

Prince Charming live-action Disney film in the works - but is it Snow White or Cinderella's prince?

6 July 2015 9:02 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Disney is continuing its slate of live-action fairy tale adaptations with a movie focused on Prince Charming.

There's no word on whether the prince in question will be related to Snow White or Cinderella as yet, but the script apparently offers a "revisionist take on the fairy tales", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Matt Fogel has penned the script, alongside David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films, and Tripp Vinson in the producer seats. Alex Young will serve as executive producer.

The idea follows the success of the recent Cinderella live-action remake, as well as Maleficent.

Richard Madden played Prince Charming in Cinderella, while Chris Pine also took the part in Into the Woods.

Disney has several other live-action remakes in the pipeline too, including The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Dumbo, Winnie the Pooh, Mulan, Pinnochio and more.

Prepare yourself for a new Pinocchio from Robert Downey Jr and Paul Thomas Anderson

1 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In one of the strangest recent pieces of reboot news, a new Pinocchio movie could be coming from Robert Downey Jr and Paul Thomas Anderson.

The Inherent Vice and Boogie Nights filmmaker is in talks to write and possibly direct a new version of the classic children's story for Warner Bros.

Anderson will be reworking a previous screenplay draft written by Michael Mitnick (The Giver), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Downey is producing this live-action version of Pinocchio and will also star as the living puppet's woodcarver Geppetto.

Inherent Vice was originally supposed to pair Anderson and Downey, before scheduling conflicts led to Joaquin Phoenix stepping in as the dysfunctional detective Doc Sportello.

Several live-action versions of classic animated movies are currently in the works.

Aside from its own new version of Pinocchio, Disney has new versions of The Jungle Book, Pete's Dragon, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan and Winnie the Pooh on the way. »

Paul Thomas Anderson is Writing Robert Downey Jr.'s 'Pinocchio' & May Direct

1 July 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There are more than a few live-action fairy tale re-imaginings brewing inside the Hollywood system right now, but Robert Downey Jr's long-gesturing new take on Pinocchio just got a lot more clout. He roped in Paul Thomas Anderson to pen the fairy tale's screenplay. There's also a solid chance the filmmaker will take this on as his next directorial project. This project becomes the next step in the celebrity's longstanding friendship. The two of them have looked to work together for some time, and almost got the chance when Downey signed on to play the lead in Anderson's latest, last year's Inherent Vice, before the actor had to drop out due to pesky Avengers: Age of Ultron obligations. Downey is slated to produce this new movie with his wife, Susan, for Team Downey and alongside Dan Jinks, so there's little chance of this one slipping from their collective cracks, »
