With “Finding Dory” booming at the box office (having made $663.7 million worldwide so far), it’s no wonder Disney is working on getting a new project off the ground that has Ellen DeGeneres involved. Deadline reported that Disney has signed Bill Kunstler to adapt a screenplay based on the children’s book “Castle Hangnail” by Ursula Vernon.
“Castle Hangnail” tells the story of a 12-year-old girl who seeks to fill the vacant position of “wicked witch” at a castle who needs one ASAP, or they may be decommissioned by the Board of Magic. The young girl must undergo many challenges to land the position, and discovers much about herself along the way.
A Very Good Production is the production company for Ellen DeGeneres‘s talk show, and became attached to produce the “Castle Hangnail” Disney film.
