Disney picks up ‘Liberty’

Pic centers on an electronic attack against the U.S.

LivePlanet’s Sean Bailey and Chris Moore will produce the big-budget war pic “Liberty” under their recently inked deal at Disney.

Bailey is penning the script, a high-concept modern-day war movie in the vein of “The Rock” and “Guns of Navarone” set in present-day San Francisco. Ted Griffin will exec produce.

Pic centers on an attack on the U.S. with an electromagnetic pulse that makes computer chips inoperable, completely disrupting modern society. As a result, the U.S. is forced to defend itself against a digital-age threat by resorting to old-fashioned combat methods.

Buena Vista Motion Pictures prexy Nina Jacobson and exec VP Jason Reed will oversee the project for the studio.

LivePlanet is currently producing the concept comedy “Aftermath,” now being rewritten, at Touchstone. Shingle, in association with Scott Free and ImageMovers, is finishing up post-production on the Ridley Scott-directed Nicolas Cage drama “Matchstick Men” for Warner Bros. and currently shooting “American Wedding,” the third installment of the “American Pie” franchise, at Universal.
