Joe Stillman, whose credits include the first two “Shrek” films and “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief,” was signed last year to pen the first draft. Nathanson’s credits include “The Occasionally Interesting Anti-Adventures of an Unnamed Girl” for Disney and “The Many Deaths of Barnaby James” for Appian Way and Warners. He’s repped by CAA and Benderspink.
