We hear that Overbrook Entertainment (owned by Will), along with Disney is set to produce a new film titled Monster Witness Relocation Program, which we hear is a script based on the young adult novel titled Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless.
It seems that Disney had their eyes on this film a couple of years ago and acquired rights to in 2005 for $1.5 million, from Michael Wilson and Ahmet Zappa.
Word is that young Jaden Smith is expected to star in movie, although that hasn’t officially been confirmed yet.
After doing some research to discover what the script would be about we were unsuccessful, but the book description states this on Amazon: “When 11-year-old Minerva McFearless and her younger brother, Max, discover that they are the latest generation in a family of monster-hunters, their widowed father forbids them to learn anything about his dangerous occupation. Nonetheless, the siblings soon come upon Ms. Monstranomicon, a monster-hunter’s manual that is a monster herself, and find themselves pursued by the minions of the vile Zarmaglorg, king of the monsters, who kidnaps their father.”
Now since the titled character in the book is a girl we think that the script is going to be written with Jaden in the lead and the script re-written for him as a male lead. I also expect the character’s younger brother to be written for his younger sister as in the book because in the book the younger sibling is a boy. So, this may be the perfect role for Jaden’s sister Willow Smith and introduced in that role.
As of this writing, there is no more details on the story, but as we get the facts we will relay them to you.
