Raimi and Disney Developing Transplants

Walt Disney Pictures has picked up The Transplants, an action-adventure pitch from screenwriters Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson for Sam Raimi (“Spider-Man” films) to produce via the Stars Road Entertainment production company he runs with partner Josh Donen.

The Hollywood Reporter says the parties are keeping a tight lid on the high-concept project, though it is described as a four-quadrant ensemble superhero story with a comedic bent.

Epstein and Jacobson, best known for Not Another Teen Movie, were planning to execute their idea via a comic book, but Disney executive Kristin Burr was so keen on it that the company pre-emptively picked up “Transplants.”
