Jon Favreau In Talks To Direct ‘Magic Kingdom’ For Walt Disney

It’s being reported that Jon Favreau, director of the Iron Man movies and the upcoming Cowboys & Aliens, is now on a course to direct Magic Kingdom for The Walt Disney Company.

The movie has been around for a couple of years now, with a first draft of the script being penned by Battlestar Galactica genius, Ronald D. Moore. That script didn’t play out quite how Disney wished, and a new writer will be brought in to work on another new draft under Favreau and what his vision for the movie might be. The movie is of course based on the popular Disney theme park, and will tell a story where the various attractions in the park magically come to life. Possibly Disney’s own version of Night at the Museum?

It’s unclear whether or not this will be the next project for Favreau. He’s currently in post production on Cowboys & Aliens, and has a few other projects lines up as well. There’s always the possibility of Iron Man 3 jumping up, but at the moment that still looks to be off in the distance. For the here and now, Magic Kingdom‘s new script looks like it will determine how quickly production begins.

With Favreau doing so much epic comic book work lately, many may have forgotten that the director has done his fair share of family-friendly fare in the past. He directed the Jumanji sequel, Zathura, and he also directed the holiday favorite, Elf, with Will Ferrell.
