Disney developing a movie based on Disneyland's Matterhorn roller coaster
Written by Robert Niles
The latest Disney theme park ride to become a movie? Pack yourself on the back if you guessed Matterhorn Bobsleds.Tweet
The Hollywood Reporter says that Disney's tapped Jason Dean Hall to write a script for the film, tentatively titled "The Hill." Tron Legacy's Justin Springer is producing the project.
Matterhorn joins a long and growing list of Disneyland and Walt Disney World theme park rides that the company's leveraged into films. Pirates of the Caribbean, obviously, has been the one big hit. But the company's also now developing "Jungle Cruise," with Tim Allen and Tom Hanks, as well as "Haunted Mansion," directed by Guillermo del Toro (after a failed first attempt starring Eddie Murphy). Other attempts have included films based on the Country Bears and the Tower of Terror. And there's Jon Favreau's "Magic Kingdom" in the works, too.
Your guesses on a plot for the Matterhorn flick are welcomed in the comments. As always, snark, sarcasm and irony are appreciated in your jokes. :^)
