As Halloween Kills prepares to arrive in cinemas this week, David Gordon Green is making another jump to a different genre, landing a deal to make a movie about Walt Disney’s efforts to build Disneyland.

Evan Spiliotopoulos is aboard to write the script for the movie, which was originally developed by Calvary Media and producer Jason Reed.

Not much is known about exactly what the film will focus on, or who at this point will play Disney, but it’ll likely chronicle his dream of a theme park, which evolved from his initial conception in 1948 to buying a 130-acre property in 1953, breaking ground the following year and opening to the public in 1955.

Disney last focused on its founder in 2013’s Saving Mr. Banks, which had Tom Hanks playing Walt as he tried coax the approval of author PL Travers (Emma Thompson in the film) to make Mary Poppins.

As for Green, he has another horror on the way with Halloween Ends due next year.
