Stephen Chbosky to write and potentially direct Disney’s Prince Charming

According to THR, filmmaker Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Wonder) has signed on to write the script for Disney’s live-action fairy tale reimagining Prince Charming, with a view to directing the project.

Prince Charming has been scripted by Matt Fogel (Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son) and is described as a “revisionist take” on the character who appeared in the likes of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella, exploring the life of the iconic prince from the point of view of his brother, who never quite lived up to the family name.

The film reunites Chbosky with Disney, having worked as a writer on the live-action Beauty and the Beast, as well as Wonder producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films.

Disney has several live-action adaptations of its animated classics in the works, including Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King,

Disney's Prince Charming Movie Targets Perks of Being a Wallflower Director

Disney's Prince Charming Movie Targets Perks of Being a Wallflower Director
Disney is finally moving forward with its long-gestating Prince Charming project, bringing aboard filmmaker Stephen Chbosky to write the script, with an eye towards directing as well. We first reported on this Prince Charming live-action movie back in July 2015, with the studio bringing in writer Matthew Fogel (Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son) to write the script, but we haven't heard any updates on the project since then. Disney still hasn't issued a release date and there is no production schedule at this time, but at least the studio is actually moving forward with this once gestating project.

There is no indication as to whether Stephen Chbosky is simply rewriting or performing a polish on the original script by Matthew Fogel, or if he is conducting an exhaustive page-one rewrite and starting over from scratch. The story for this latest Disney live-action remake will be a revisionist tale, told from

Pirates Of The Caribbean 5's co-director is set to take on the Maleficent sequel...
