Transplanted From Sony To The Mouse...


Sam Raimi is teaming up with the Mouse...

Walt Disney Studios has purchased "The Transplants", an action-adventure pitch from screenwriters Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson for Raimi to produce through his Stars Road Entertainment shingle. The deal is in the mid to high six figure range.

The story is being kept very hush-hush, but it has been described as a four-quadrant ensemble superhero story with a comedic bent. I have no idea what the heck that means.

This is Disney's first pairing with Raimi, but hopefully not the last... I could see several projects the studio working on with his fingerprints on them.
