Hey, if Disney can do it....

A story in the Hollywood Reporter said that the creators of Busch Gardens Europe's 3-D ride Corkscrew Hill are shopping a feature script based on the attraction.

Visual effects innovators Jeff Kleiser and Diana Walczak -- who wrote and directed the ride for Busch Entertainment -- have taken the ride idea and extended it to a developed feature-length script. Plans would call for Kleiser and Walczak's Synthespian Studios to produce in partnership with Busch Entertainment. Kleiser and Walczak also would co-direct.

Kleiser and Walczak's visual effects credits include Clear and Present Danger and Stargate. Kleiser's resume also includes work on the 1982 groundbreaking effects film Tron.

Could this be the next Pirates of the Caribbean? ...Or the next Haunted Mansion?

don't like the ride, hope the movie is better

Could be worse--they could've tried to expand "The Haunted Lighthouse" to feature length.

Or even worse still......Pirates 4D.
If done correctly it could be a great movie. If it works then you might see a Akbars Adventure Tour movie as well....that might work well too.
