‘Saw’ Writers to Adapt ‘Stuff of Legend’

Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the writing team behind four of the seven Saw films, are moving into family-friendly territory.

The pair have been tapped to adapt Disney’s live-action family film The Stuff of Legend.

The project, which is based on a graphic novel written by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith and illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III, revolves around a band of toys that journeys into a dark realm to rescue their owner from the infamous Boogeyman.

Peter Candeland is attached to direct the film, which is being produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman through their Disney-based Mandeville Films.
