‘Navy Seals’ enlists Disney

Project will combine two previous pic ideas

Walt Disney Pictures has combined two pitches into a single pic project about sea creatures that help protect American forces.

Untitled pic, which is being called the “Navy Seals” project, combines one idea from writer Patrick Aiello and Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray’s Mayhem Pictures with another from Jessie Nelson & Nina Laden.

Mayhem, Aiello, Nelson and Laden together will search for a writer to pen the script.

Pic will be set at the San Diego Marine Mammals base and will focus on the Navy program that trains dolphins, seals and other aquatic creatures to find and rescue downed pilots, protect ships, and perform other tasks they can handle better than humans.

The sea creatures will be the main characters in the film. It’s still undetermined whether the pic will be animated or live-action.

Brigham Taylor is the executive on “Navy Seals”; Mayhem’s Jon Mone will help oversee the project.
