Reported by Outsiders - 02:33 PM 2012.06.12
Deadline is reporting that Pete Candeland is set to direct and Shawn Christensen is writing the script for the pre-emptive pitch deal that Disney just made for Stuff Of Legends.
Stuff Of Legends is based on a graphic novel written by Mike Raicht & Brian Smith and illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III. 'A young boy in 1944 is abducted by the Boogeyman, dragged by the ankles into the closet realm known as The Dark. The boy’s puppy rallies his toys to follow his master in a rescue mission. Once in the closet, each of those toys become menacingly large and agile creatures who engage in a war with the Boogeyman’s forces. Those armies are comprised of the other toys stored in the closet, a mix of medieval knights, cowboys and toy soldiers.'
