"Chicken" Scribes Make Another Link with Disney

by | January 6, 2006 | Comments

The Hollwood Reporter brings news of a new pitch that’s been sold from "Chicken Little" screenwriters Ron Friedman & Steve Bencich to Disney, and it can basically be summed up in three words: Monkey Spy Adventure.

""Chicken Little" scribes Ron Friedman and Steve Bencich are reteaming with Walt Disney Pictures for the live-action family comedy "The Missing Link." Disney paid mid-six figures for Friedman and Bencich’s pitch, which is described as a monkey spy adventure in the vein of "The Bourne Identity.""

Beat THAT, aspiring screenwriters!
