The family comedy follows a father and son that have an adventurous night at a lavish toy store. It has been described as being in the tone of Home Alone.
Disney has chosen Hess because of his ability to appeal to both young and adult audiences with his films Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre.
Hess has recently written and directed the comedy Don Verdean, and is set to direct the action/comedy Masterminds.
Hess is repped by UTA.
