Dis picks up pitch from King, Marx


Walt Disney Pictures has picked up a comedy pitch by Andrea King and Andy Marx for Jerry Bruckheimer to produce via his Jerry Bruckheimer Films banner.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, it is a family comedy about dueling neighbors.

The studio's Jason Reed is overseeing.

King was a writer for The Hollywood Reporter before turning to screenwriting. She acted as a consultant on "Sex and the City" and recently finished writing "Ex Factor" for the Team Todd. She is repped by CAA.

Marx, a descendant of the Marx Brothers who is married to DreamWorks Animation's Terry Press, was a publicist on such films as "The Terminator" and "Above the Law" before turning to screenwriting.
