The Tracking Board is reporting that a hot new spec script entitled Princesses is being shopped to prospective studios in Hollywood, having been pitched as “a female-driven Avengers featuring classic fairy tale princesses.”
The script has been penned by Nir Paniry (Extracted) and is being sent to all buyers simultaneously; should Disney make a bid, the studio has reported tapped Joachim Ronning (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) to direct.
Details on the script are being kept under wraps, and it is not known which princesses are involved in the story, although it is said it is likely that they are iconic characters popularised by Disney, but in the public domain.

Live-action fairytales are all the rage in Hollywood (see: Beauty and the Beast), but what about live-action fairytales that enter a new genre altogether?
Well, if a new report collated by The Tracking Board is to be believed, Princesses could go on to become the answer. Hatched by screenwriter Nir Paniry (Extracted), the project only has a spec script to its name at the moment, but TB claims the treatment is being shopped to studios near and far – Disney included.
The elevator pitch is a “female-driven Avengers featuring classic fairy tale princesses,” and though it’s unclear which characters will feature – it’ll largely depend on where the project lands, essentially – we understand Joachim Ronning (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) is currently attached at the helm, with Lawrence Grey (Lights Out, Last Vegas) involved in a producing capacity.
