Disney uncovers hidden treasure

Benderspink, Offspring to produce film

Disney has launched development of an adult treasure hunt project, snapping up a spec script from tyro scribes Amy Pocha and Seth Cohen, and setting it up with Benderspink and Offspring Entertainment.

Untitled story revolves around a group of friends in their thirties who try to discover a hidden treasure they were unable to find when they were 12-year-olds.

Tale is based on an original idea by Mason Novick, who will produce with Benderspink and Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman via their Disney-based shingle Offspring Entertainment with co-producer Matthew Mizel.

Shankman is next directing Adam Sandler in Disney’s “Bedtime Stories,” shooting in January. Shankman is currently in post-production on “Hairspray.”

Benderspink is developing New Line’s “All Boxed Up,” “This Bill Smith” at Columbia, and “The Ghouly Boys” with Mandate.
