Over the years, we’ve seen Disney bring some of its iconic theme park attractions to the big screen with movies based on “Pirates Of The Caribbean,” “The Haunted Mansion,” and “Jungle Cruise.” And it looks like Disney has its eyes on bringing one of its lesser-known attractions to the big screen.

THR is reporting that 21 Laps Entertainment is developing a new movie based on the private Disneyland club “Club 33.” This exclusive members-only club originally opened in Disneyland in 1967 near the Pirates Of The Caribbean attraction.

It is difficult to get a membership to the exclusive restaurant, which was the only place in Disneyland for years that sold alcohol. The club was so successful that it opened branches in Walt Disney World, Shanghai Disney, and Tokyo Disneyland. It is reported that a membership to the club can cost $50,000 for the initiation fee and $15,000 a year in fees, plus no photos or videos are allowed to be taken while inside the venue.

Darren Lemke, who has previously worked on the DC Comics movie Shazam and the Sony film Goosebumps, will write the new movie.

“Club 33” will tell the story of a young aspiring detective who receives a mysterious invite to the highly secretive Club 33. In this case, it’s a magical and exclusive dining club whose members are the greatest and most iconic figures from across history. When a murder is committed on the premises, the patrons look to the young detective to solve it. They are aiming to give it vibes of “Clue” and “Night At The Museum”.

“Deadpool & Wolverine” director Shawn Levy, along with Dan Levine and Dan Cohen, are going to be producing the upcoming film. The trio are also behind shows like “Stranger Things”.

No other details on this project have been revealed, and it’s likely still in the very early stages of development, so it could be years away from being released, either in theatres or directly onto Disney+. This is one of many Disney theme park attractions currently in the process of being translated onto our screens, as Disney is also working on multiple projects based around the “Society of Explorers and Adventurers”, which is linked to multiple attractions, including “Mystic Manor” in Hong Kong Disneyland.

Roger’s Take: “Club 33” is an interesting idea to bring to the big screen since most people will be unaware it’s even a thing at Disney. It might also create a little more interest in people signing up for the club’s membership, even though the wait list is apparently five years. As someone who enjoys a good murder mystery movie, I’m not 100% sure the tone will work for a more family-friendly version, but hopefully, they can get that tone right.
