David Lowery To Script Pete’s Dragon For Disney


It looks like another Disney classic film has a potential remake in the works.  David Lowery, who directed  Ain’t Them Bodies Saints which was one of the most talked about films at Sundance, has been hired on along with writing partner Toby Halbrooks to write a script for a Pete’s Dragon remake for Disney and producer Jim Whitaker.  Sources say they will reinvent the story and it will not be a musical.

The original Pete’s Dragon, which came out in 1977, combined an animated fire-breathing dragon with the live action cast of Mickey Rooney, Red Buttons, Shelly Winters and Helen Reddy and told the story of an orphan boy who comes to a town with his magical dragon and his abusive adoptive parents in hot pursuit.

Are you looking forward to this remake if it comes out, and who do you think should play the lead characters?  Let us know!
