Disney nabs actioner as vehicle for Jet Li

Voris, Reiff sell script for Donners' Co. to produce

The Walt Disney Co. has purchased an untitled action pitch from scribes Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff for a mid against high six figures.

Project is intended as a vehicle for Hong Kong actor Jet Li (“Lethal Weapon IV”); the actor is in negotiations with the Mouse House for acting and producing pacts.

Dick Donner and Loren-Shuler Donner and their Warner-based Donners’ Co. will produce.

Story centers on a district attorney in New York who must partner with the powerful head of a Chinese crime organization when the district attorney’s pregnant wife is kidnapped.

The Donners’ Co.’s Mike Aguilar brought the project to the Mouse House, where Jason Reed and co-prexies Nina Jacobson and Todd Garner will oversee it.

Li is currently working on Warner Bros.’ “Romeo Must Die.”

Voris and Reiff’s last feature credit was “Camelot 3000,” a futuristic actioner, for producer Mark Canton and Warner Bros.; they also created Fox television’s “Brimstone” and are developing pilots for CBS and Fox.

Voris and Reiff were repped by their agents Ramsis IsHak and Aaron Kaplan of WMA; their manager Steve Freedman; and their lawyer David Feldman of Bloom Hergott Cook Diemer & Klein.
