Cider Mill nabs debut Mouse project

Producer Damien Saccani has placed his first project at the Walt Disney Co. since opening his Cider Mill production shingle at the studio last month, setting up Dave Collard’s untitled family comedy.

Story follows an extended family on vacation.

Deal reteams Collard with the Mouse, for which he penned the recent release “Annapolis,” starring James Franco and Tyrese Gibson.

Saccani will produce, with Collard taking exec producer credit.

Collard also penned the MGM thriller “Out of Time,” starring Denzel Washington. That pic landed Washington his first $20 million payday. Collard’s other credits include the cartoon laffer “Family Guy” on Fox.
