There is a new movie idea on the books focusing on one of my favorite rides “Tower of Terror.” Walt Disney Studios along with Jim Whitaker and John August, producing are setting up the key pieces of the puzzle. A call out for a screenwriter to take the idea and make it a reality is in the works as the first step. Whitaker and August came up with the idea to take one of the most popular Disney attractions and make it into a movie. The Tower of Terror original movie was made for TV back in 1997, while this idea is headed towards the big screen, leaning more towards the concept of the live action films that are in the various stages of production. Based on the concept of taking a group of people and having them get stuck in an elevator, the studio has shown interest in the development and given the go ahead to move forward. Although this is still in very early stages, we will keep everyone updated of news and developments of what is sure to be an amazing Disney movie.
Tower of Terror was reportedly the very first theme park ride turned into a movie, but it was done for television in 1997 and starred Steve Guttenberg and Kirsten Dunst. The Haunted Mansion movie (2003) and Tomorrowland (2015) were also based on Disney rides and attractions. What is your favorite movie based on a park attraction –
