Scribes Jack Angelo and Sam Brown("Undateable" in development at WDS) have sold the comedy pitch "Fear Phil" to Disney, with Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot's Offspring Entertainment set to produce.
The Mouse bought the pitch for a high six versus a low seven figures. The tale follows an insurance salesman that makes a living preying on other people's fears. One day he wakes up to find that his own worst fears have coming true and hilarity ensues.
Adam Shankman is currently directing "Bedtime Stories," starring Adam Sandler for Disney.
