Angelo, Brown sell ‘Fear’ to Disney

Shankman's Offspring producing comedy pitch

Jack Angelo and Sam Brown have set up their comedy pitch “Fear Phil” at Disney, with Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot’s Offspring Entertainment set to produce.

Studio spent high six against low seven figures for the project that revolves around an insurance salesman who makes a living preying on other people’s fears, only to wake up and find that his own worst fears are coming true.

Angelo and Brown recently penned “Undateable,” also set up at Disney and Offspring, which is based on the lot.

Shankman is in the midst of helming the comedy “Bedtime Stories,” starring Adam Sandler, at Disney. Offspring, which most recently produced the Mouse House hit “Step Up 2,” recently wrapped the Zac Efron laffer “Seventeen Again” at New Line.
