New Project At Disney!



We're working on a big, female driven feature comedy with our good friend, "Superstar!" Molly Shannon!

DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD - EXCLUSIVE: Molly Shannon teamed with veteran scribes Rob Muir and Bob Hilgenberg to sell an untitled comedy feature pitch to Disney. They will write the script together for a film that could be a star vehicle for Shannon. It’s based on their own experiences as parents, and the comedy focuses on the social world of motherhood. The film will be produced by Andrew Panay (Wedding Crashers), and Shannon will be exec producer. Hilgenberg & Muir are currently scripting a live-action version of The Family Circus for Fox and Walden Media. Shannon’s repped by Gersh and Framework Entertainment, the scribes are repped by Summit Talent & Literary.

It's a far cry from the days when we were knockin' around comedy clubs in LA with Molly. The Rob & Molly Show was a showcase that led directly to getting Molly on SNL! After that, Rob was stuck with Bob.

Below, Molly tells the kind of stories that led to the three of us coming up with the idea for this project.

WALT DISNEY'S OFFICE RESTORED!

Old Animation Building: FINALLY, Walt's original office that he used up until his death, will be restored to the exact condition (including furniture and personal belongings) it was in when he roamed these halls. Through the years the office was given to producers and directors with deals at Disney. Some who were very respectfull of the world they were occupiyng…others, not so much. The last inhabitant wouldn't let them use the office to film Saving Mr. Banks​. He wouldn't even allow them to use it for reference. Pretty much the last straw for the studio, who are doing what should have been done years ago. A living monument to the man who built this place and changed an entire industry. I spoke with one of the workers who was hauling a big bag of plaster and he said, "I get the chills sometimes when I'm working in there". Wouldn't we all...



New writing gig..."Tinker Bell 3"

This is a very special character that has a lot of history and expectations to uphold. We're having a blast already.

"Tinker Bell And The Great Fairy Rescue"

This trailer is just the tip-of-the-iceberg of what this film has become! We're really looking forward to having it released this time next year! We knew when Award winning actor, Michael Sheen ('Frost/Nixon' and 'The Queen'), joined the already all-star cast, this would be a special project. Thanks to John Lasseter, Andrew Millstein, Brad Raymond and all of the incredibly talented people at Disney...and of course Pixar! Release date, Fall 2010!
