‘G.I. Joe’ scribes on Disney’s ‘Gargoyles’

Writing duo David Elliot and Paul Lovett exploring pic as live-action film

Writing duo David Elliot and Paul Lovett (“G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra”) are the latest scribes to tackle a project that explores the world of gargoyles at Disney.

The two, whose credits include Paramount’s “Four Brothers,” pitched an original take to the Mouse House that the studio is keen on exploring as a live action film. Lauren Shuler Donner will produce.

Project is not tied to “Gargoyles,” the popular animated TV series that Disney produced in the 1990s. Instead, it centers on a world in which the stone statues on buildings come to life. Elliot and Lovett would portray them as guardian angels for the cities in which they are located.

Zoe Green had previously been developing an idea with Shuler Donner and Disney exec LouAnne Brickhouse, who is shepherding the project, which is being eyed as a possible film franchise that could spin off a line of videogames, merchandise, TV shows and theme park rides.

Elliot and Lovett are repped by Verve, Principato/Young Management and McKuin, Frankel & Whitehead.
