Disney Revving Up Action-Comedy ‘The Wheelman’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Disney is revving up the family action-comedy “The Wheelman,” bringing on the sibling writing team of Jim and Brian Kehoe to script.

Panay Film’s Andrew Panay, Adam Blum and Jared Iacino are producing. Panay’s credits include “Wedding Crashers” and “Hot Tub Time Machine 2.”

“Night at the Museum” writers Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant wrote the original script, in which a Las Vegas limo driver is forced to drive around a mob boss’ bratty son and his friends. The driver gets in a little too deep when the mafioso goes missing.

Kristin Burr and Louie Provost are overseeing “The Wheelman” for the studio.

The Kehoe brothers recently sold action-comedy pitch “Top of the Food Chain” to Lionsgate and Tyler Perry’s 34th Street Films. China-based DMG Entertainment (“Iron Man 3”) has come aboard as a producer to support an international release.

The brothers’ Black List script “Cherries” is moving into production with Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg directing. They also sold  “You Complete Us” to Offspring Entertainment.

The Kehoe brothers are repped by WME and DMG Entertainment.

    Congrats Jim and Brian! You guys are everywhere these days. Hard work pays off especially when you’re super talented. The article should mention that Seth Rogen’s on your movie. I cant wait to see that one.
