MIchael Chabon, one of the coolest people I have interviewed, was once hired to write a draft for “Spider-Man 2.” And I’m still waiting for the Coen Brothers to adapt Chabon’s “Yiddish Policemen’s Union.” But it looks like Chabon will be trying his hand at screenwriting again. The Pulitzer-Prize winning author has been hired to write the screenplay for “Magic Kingdom.”

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Chabon will now begin tackling a story whose details are being kept under wraps but is set in Disney’s flagship theme park and may even be connected to other parks worldwide.

If you’ve read “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay,” the choice of Chabon seems a bit adult for a family film but he definitely has a knack for entertainment-related adventures.
