Disney's Mickey and the Beanstalk

Mickey and the Beanstalk is likely as close to a full-fledged Disney animated film based on the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale as we are going to get. That being said, with all of the recent trends of the studio announcing live-action adaptations of their animated classics, it seems like it was only a matter of time before this happened.

According to a report from Deadline, Disney has acquired the rights to Beanstalk, a revisionist take on the Jack and the Beanstalk story written by Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan. Hit the jump for more.

Bryan Singer’s Jack The Giant Slayer was the most recent attempt at an adaptation. The film suffered production problems and was a box office bomb, making $197.6 million worldwide on a $195 million budget. However, with Disney riding out their own trend, buying Gilligan’s story may not be so bad. This is the guy who created Breaking Bad, after all. The highly successful AMC original drama is considered on of the best shows in television history, which also earned numerous award nominations. So, there is really no downside to this.

The site adds that this could be a possible directing vehicle for Gilligan. No official offer has been made, but Gilligan and Mark Johnson will act as producers.

AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul has already been renewed for a second season, but Disney isn’t necessarily fast tracking Jack and the Beanstalk, so depending on the situation, Gilligan could make some time for himself to direct the film.

Disney is also working on live-action remakes of The Jungle Book, Pete’s Dragon, Dumbo, Mulan, and Winnie The Pooh. Bill Condon’s Beauty and The Beast, starring Emma Watson is currently under production.

It’s still in the very early stages, so Disney hasn’t announced a target release date or year.
