La Disney acquista lo script di una commedia sul Principe Azzurro

Sulla scia del successo di Cenerentola (oltre 500 milioni di dollari in tutto il mondo), la Walt Disney Pictures sta esplorando ulteriori idee per portare sul grande schermo in live action le fiabe più amate, o spin-off come Maleficent.
L’Hollywood Reporter rivela che la major ha appena acquistato uno spec script scritto da Matt Folger e incentrato sulla storia del Principe Azzurro. Nulla sappiamo sulla trama, se non che seguirà il passato di un personaggio chiave in numerose fiabe e persino in adattamenti moderni, da Cenerentola a Into the Woods. Non è da dare per scontato quindi che si tratti di uno spin-off o prequel di Cenerentola, tant’è che Varietyaggiunge un particolare, spiegando che la storia potrebbe piuttosto essere incentrata sul fratello delPrincipe Azzurro, impegnato a cercare di soddisfare le aspettative della sua famiglia.
A produrre la pellicola, definita come una commedia, saranno la Mandeville Films e la Tripp Vinson. 

La storia del principe prima dell'incontro con Cenerentola?
Non si sa ancora, qualcuno dice che si tratta della storia del fratello...

In a fantastical French countryside, three Troubadours begin to sing a song about the legendary "Prince Charming." Despite his charm, PRINCE CHARMING (Adult) has commitment issues, and has divorced both Snow White and Cinderella. They reveal he has a twin brother, PRINCE TREMBLING (Adult) who is clumsy, cowardly, and far from charming. In Castle Delaine, Charming and Trembling's father, KING ROLAND (Old Man), lies on his death bed. It is revealed that in order for Prince Charming to succeed him, he must marry a princess. Several advisors, including The Good Wizard BRAMBLEBERRY (Old Man), discover that a princess has been kidnapped, and plan for Charming to rescue her. At the same time, Prince Charming is approached by several of his lovers and thrown out of a window. This puts him in a a comedic condition called "embrainelment." With no one left to save the princess, the advisors begin scheming. They decide that Prince Trembling must disguise himself as Prince Charming and save the princess. They change his look, attempt to train him, and, despite his unpreparedness, send him on the dangerous quest. He is told to find a pirate, Peter Wilde, who will take him to the kingdom where the princess is held captive. Meanwhile, PRINCESS ROSEBUD (20s), the princess in question, dines with......
Molto dettagliata, ricorda Shrek per l'irriverenza ma pure lo show tv Galavant. Non sono molto speranzoso che possa ritornare in produzione, Disney è molto concentrata sui live action e spin off dei propri Classici. Visto l'insuccesso di Into the Woods, di Galavant e degli ascolti in picchiata di C'era una volta, lo vedo molto improbabile. Interessante però che sia un film generalmente originale, si pensava fosse una ripresa di Cenerentola o Biancaneve, invece è tutta un'altra storia.
Non il principe azzurro di Cenerentola? Ma un principe qualsiasi?

Disney's 'Prince Charming' Sets Writer-Director Stephen Chbosky (Exclusive)

The move reunites Chbosky with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, the producers of his latest movie, 'Wonder.'
Stephen Chbosky, whose drama Wonder opens this weekend, has signed on to tackle a Disney fairy tale.

The writer-director will pen, with an eye to helm, Prince Charming, the studio’s reimagined take on the fairy and folk tale trope.

The movie reunites Chbosky with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films/TV, who produced Wonder. Hoberman and Lieberman are producing Prince Charming along with Tripp Vinson.

Matt Fogel wrote the initial script for the project, which is a revisionist take on the character popularized in Disney’s own fairy tale movies such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. The story takes a look at the iconic prince from the point of view of his brother, who never quite lived up to the family name.

Chbosky wrote the book and then subsequently penned and directed the film adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the acclaimed 2012 teen drama the starred Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. He also worked on Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast (which also was produced by Mandeville) as a writer.

Wonder is the adaptation of the R.J. Palacio young adult novel that tells the story of a boy born with a facial deformity who enters fifth grade. The movie, which stars Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay, has been receiving strong reviews.

Chbosky is repped by WME and Hansen Jacobson.
Dal sito Disney Film Facts:


A little over a year ago it was announced that Disney was in development on a live-action adaptation of Prince Charming with Matt Fogel writing the initial script, with Wonder director Stephen Chbosky helming the project. Now we have exclusive story details to share with you.

The film will follow Prince Charming’s twin brother, who must take over his brothers identity and team up with Snow White to save Princess Rosebud and his own kingdom from the evil King Anatgony (name could change). Along the way Charming will learn how to find and accept ones own true identity.

The film is expected to have the tone of the highly successful Pirates Of The Caribbean films. No word yet on if this film will have any connection to Disney’s other live-action fairy-tale in development Rose Red, which follows Snow White’s sister. Prince Charming will not have any connection to Disney’s 2015 hit film Cinderella.

Chbosky is currently rewriting the films script. Chbosky also wrote Disney’s box office smash hit remake of Beauty And The Beast, which grossed over $1.2 billion at the worldwide box office. Chbosky will be re-teaming with Wonder producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman who are producing Charming along with Tripp Vinson (San Andreas, Rose Red).

There is currently no release date for Prince Charming.
