Robert Zemeckis to produce sci-fi adventure

Jason Fuchs, who made his feature screenwriting debut on Fox’s “Ice Age: Continental Drift,” is writing Disney’s “The Magic Catalogue,” which Robert ZemeckisImageMovers will produce.

The sci-fi adventure is based on a concept by story artist Chris Appelhans and revolves around teens who inadvertently acquire a cache of high-tech weapons the likes of which have never been seen.

Scribe’s credits include co-writing the Nick Cannon-produced made-for-TV musical “Rags,” which bowed on Nickelodeon this summer. He also adapted Daniel Waters’ supernatural thriller “Break My Heart 1,000 Times” for Gold Circle Films and action-adventure “The Clock Without a Face” for the Montecito Picture Co. and Paramount, based on the book of the same name.

Appelhans was a visual development artist on Disney toon “The Princess and the Frog,” an environment designer on Fox’s “The Fantastic Mr. Fox” and an illustrator on Laika Entertainment and Focus Features’ “Coraline.” He previously worked with ImageMovers on “Monster House” as a character designer.

Zemeckis recently helmed Denzel Washington drama “Flight,” which Par will release Nov. 2.

Separately, ImageMovers also produced “Real Steel,” which Disney distribbed for DreamWorks in 2011.
