After penning Feast, Feast II: Sloppy Seconds, Feast III: The Happy Finish, Saw IV, V, VI and VII, The Collector, The Collection, and Piranha 3DD, Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are set to take a well earned break from horror by scripting The Stuff of Legend for Disney. The fantasy film tells the tale of a young boy kidnapped by the Bogeyman and taken to the neither world that lies beyond the doors of his closet. But not to worry, an army of his loyal toys led by a brave teddy bear will venture into ‘the Dark’ to do battle with the forces of evil and rescue him. Seems Melton & Dunstan haven't abandoned the creepy completely.
The Stuff of Legend is based on Mike Raicht, Brian Smith and Charles Paul Wilson III’s ongoing 2009 graphic novel series by the same name. It's certainly an intriguing concept with huge potential (who wouldn't want to see a Toy Story / Labyrinth mash-up?) but it's early days yet; even if development goes smoothly we shouldn't expect to see the film before 2016.
