Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have been hired to rewrite THE STUFF OF LEGEND for Disney. Based on the graphic novel of the same name, the story follows a band of toys who journey into a dark realm to rescue their owner from the infamous Boogeyman.
Peter Candeland will direct while David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman produce through Mandeville Films.
Melton and Dunstan got their start on “Project Greenlight 3”, which I watched religiously. It’s through that show that “Feast” got off the ground and their careers were born. They’ve since gone on to write two more sequels (“Feast II: Sloppy Seconds”, “Feast III: The Happy Finish”), “Saw” IV-VI, and most recently “The Collection”, which Dunstan directed. They’re also attached to write “The Outer Limits” and “Outliers” amongst many other projects.
They are repped by WME.
