The studio has picked up the life rights of the man, Jeremiah Heaton, as well as that of his family.
Morgan Spurlock, the filmmaker behind documentaries Super Size Me and The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, is on board to produce along with Richard Arlook.
The media covered the event in the summer, which focused on American dad Heaton whose daughter asked if she would ever be a princess. Like any good American dad not wanting to disappoint his daughter, he began searching for a region in the world that was disputed, alighting on a territory named Bir Tawil, an area between Egypt and Sudan. In June, he flew to the area, planted a flag and claimed it for himself and his family. They called it the Kingdom of North Sudan.
Spurlock and Arlook, Spurlock's manager, contacted Heaton directly, who in turn granted them permission to his and his family’s life rights. The pair then approached Disney.
The project has no writer attached, but the studio wants to focus on the father-daughter relationship and use the article as a jumping-off point for a fantastical adventure.
Princess of North Sudan is a working title at this stage.

Stephany Folsom has been tapped to pen the script for The Princess of North Sudan, Disney’s unique princess tale inspired by the true account of an American man claiming a territory in Africa and proclaiming himself and his family its royal rulers.

Morgan Spurlock, the filmmaker behind documentaries Super Size Me and The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, is producing the family adventure along with Richard Arlook.

Princess tells of an American dad whose daughter asked if she would ever be a real princess. That question set the man on a search for a region in the world that was disputed, eventually finding a territory named Bir Tawil, an area between Egypt and Sudan. In June of 2014, he flew to the area, planted a flag and, calling it the Kingdom of North Sudan, claimed it for himself and his family.

The studio is focusing on the relationship between the father and daughter set against a backdrop of a fantastical adventure.

Folsom is best known for her 2013 Black List script 1969: A Space Odyssey or How Kubrick Learned to Stop Worrying and Land on the Moon. The drama earned high marks in its alternate history telling of a publicist that convinces filmmaker Stanley Kubrick to work with NASA in order to fake the moon landing.

Folsom is repped by Verve and Kaplan/Perrone.

Un'altra principessa in arrivo?

Beh è un live action e ci sembra pure ambientato ai nostri giorni... quindi non crediamo sia fiabesco quanto piuttosto un film sul sociale.
