Bert & Bertie, the directors of Hawkeye, will remain members of the Disney clan. The two have agreed to direct a Disney feature film based on the theme park ride Big Thunder Mountain. They previously directed three episodes of the Marvel/Disney+ series.
The film will be produced by Margot Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment and Ridley Scott’s Scott Free, and it will be directed by Bert & Bertie from a screenplay by married screenwriting team Kieran and Michele Mulroney, who also wrote the 2017 Power Rangers revival.
The story of Big Thunder Mountain, a Disney park attraction, is set in a mining town during the gold rush of the 1800s. The attraction is always the victim of tragedy, whether it be an earthquake (California, Paris), a tsunami (Tokyo), or a flash flood (Florida).
Ten years ago, the Disney-owned network ABC created a western pilot based on the novel Ice Age: Continental Drift’s amusement park. Chris Morgan, the author of Fast & Furious, and Jason Fuchs are executive producers. That television show never got off the ground.
Disney has a history of success in turning its theme park attractions into movies. For example, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise produced five films starring Johnny Depp. During the epidemic, it released the Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt movie Jungle Cruise, and the Rosario Dawson movie Haunted Mansion is scheduled to be out in 2023.
The British team Bert & Bertie recently directed episodes of the HBO Max series Our Flag Means Death in addition to the Sundance film Troop Zero. The announcement of their participation in the Big Thunder Mountain movie was first revealed by Deadline.
