'Transformers' Writer Boards Disney Mountain Adventure Movie (Exclusive)
Ehren Kruger will work on the project formerly associated with Disney's Matterhorn ride, while Brian Beletic is attached to direct.
High-flying scribe Ehren Kruger, whose recent work includes Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Scream 4, has been tapped to work on Disney’s untitled explorers movie project.
First-time feature director Brian Beletic is attached to helm the pic, whose first draft was written by Jason Dean Hall. Justin Springer (Tron Legacy, Prom) is producing the project.
The story centers on five young adventure seekers -- an action sports guy, travel guide, cartographer, archeologist and escape artist -- who venture into the Alps for mysterious reasons and face Yetis that guard a secret.
The project formerly was associated with the Matterhorn ride at Disneyland but its scope has since been broadened.
The studio is hoping to keep part of the movie grounded in hardcore adventuring and has brought on Brain Farm Cinema, the boutique production house that is known for filming extreme sports, as production consultants.
A scribe with a track record of getting films produced, Kruger’s work ranges from The Ring horror movies to picking up where Kevin Williamson left off with Scream 3 and Scream 4, to working on Transformers tentpoles Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon.
He is repped by Sloane Offer.
