Disney goes ‘Terra Incognita ‘

'Guardians of the Galaxy' co-scribe to pen skeen

Disney may be ready to go on a journey to uncharted lands.

The Mouse House has hired “Guardians of the Galaxy” co-scribe Nicole Perlman to pen “Terra Incognita,” based on an original pitch. Justin Springer (“Tron: Legacy,” “Prom”) will produce the project.

Plot details of the pic are being kept under wraps, but terra incognita refers to “unknown land” in Latin, and often refers to unexplored regions on maps.

Perlman, a graduate of Disney’s writer’s program, is co-writing Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” dated for Aug 1, 2014, with Chris McCoy. She previously wrote the yet-to-be-produced space-themed scripts “Challenger,” which landed on 2005’s Black List, “First Man” and “Capture the Flag,” along with “Kiss and Tango,” based on Marina Palmer’s memoirs.

Springer also is overseeing Disney’s adaptation of “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride,” based on the theme park ride. Pete Candeland is developing the movie to direct.
