The duo will be picking up the script from Jared Stern, who wrote the first draft. Jon Turtelaub is set to direct and produce alongside Dan Lin. The adaptation of the 50-year-old theme park ride follows in the footsteps of adaptations of other Disney attractions, the most successful being Pirates of the Caribbean. They are also developing Tower of Terror based on the thrill ride by the same name.
Rasmussen and Di Meglio teamed up on films including License to Wed, Smother, Marmaduke, The Fockers and currently developing the comedy The Girlfriend Equation. They are repped by UTA.
