Mouse House taps scribes Paul, Daurio to pen ‘Yeller’

Comedy to center on football player turned cheerleader tale

The Walt Disney Co. has tapped scribes Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio to pen “Yeller,” a high-concept comedy, for a mid- against high-six figures.

Newly named Buena Vista Motion Picture Group prexy Nina Jacobson, senior veep Mark Vahradian and director of development Brigham Taylor, will oversee the project for the Mouse House.

Story, an original idea given to the scribes by the studio, centers on a star football player who gets injured and decides that the only way to retain his scholarship is to become a cheerleader.

The scribes are also working on the DreamWorks project “Rockumentary”; “Special” at MGM, with Neal Moritz attached to produce; and “Bubble Boy,” the Disney project that Beau Flynn is producing via his DreamWorks-based Bandeira Entertainment banner.

Scribes are repped by Frank Wuliger at the Gersh Agency, managers Linne Radmin and Robyn Meisinger of the Radmin Company and attorney Carlos Goodman of Lichter, Grossman, Nichols and Adler.
