Details under wraps for untitled family adventure

Joe Gazzam has been tapped to write an untitled family adventure set in Hawaii for Disney that Ahmet Zappa’s Monsterfoot Prods and Scott Sanders Prods will shepherd.

Details of the project are being kept under wraps.

Gazzam is also writing Universal’s “It Takes a Thief,” based on the TV series, for John Davis and Joe Singer. His credits also include Sony’s “21 Jump Street,” Dino De Laurentiis Company’s “Barbarella” and rewrote “Step Up 4.”

Disney inked a first-look deal with Zappa in 2008. He’s currently at work on the Mouse House’s “Monster Witness Relocation Program.”

Monsterfoot and Scott Sanders also recently produced Disney’s upcoming “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.”

Gazzam is repped by ICM, Circle of Confusion and attorney Jeff Frankel.
