Disney has had some major successes with turning its theme park attractions into successful films like “Pirates Of The Caribbean” and “Jungle Cruise”.
And according to Deadline, Disney is developing a film based on the “wildest ride in the wilderness”, “Big Thunder Mountain Railroad” rollercoaster and directors, Bert & Bertie are in negotiations to direct the project.
LuckyChap Entertainment and Scott Free are going to be producing the film, while Michele Mulroney is writing the script.
No plot details have yet been revealed, but the original attraction opened at Disneyland in California in 1979, with versions also being built in Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disneyland and in Disneyland Paris.
Bert & Bertie have previously worked with Disney on the Marvel Studios series, “Hawkeye”. It’s also not currently known if this will be a theatrical release or a Disney+ Original. Hopefully, confirmation of this new film will be made soon, such as at the upcoming D23 Expo event in September.
