Disney likes reliving ‘Monday’

Shankman and Gibgot to develop with Offspring

Disney has acquired the pitch “Monday Monday,” and producers Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot will develop the comedy through their Offspring Entertainment shingle.

“Groundhog Day”-like script by first-time feature writer Flint Wainess will follow a neurotic teen who has to relive his disastrous first day at a new high school until he gets it right.

Shankman and Gibgot sparked to Wainess’ idea and “Miller Time,” a script for a pilot that didn’t get a pickup. Wainess is currently developing another pilot for Barry Josephson at 20th Century Fox Television.

Plan is for Shankman to produce but not direct. He opens “Hairspray” this summer and next directs Adam Sandler in Disney’s “Bedtime Stories,” which he and Gibgot will exec produce. Offspring is also developing a remake of “All of Me” as a star vehicle for Queen Latifah and “17” as a vehicle for “Hairspray” star Zac Efron.
