Vince Gilligan / Mickey and the Beanstalk

Beanstalk: Vince Gilligan (Breaking Bad) has written a detailed outline for Beanstalk, a "revisionist take" on Jack and the Beanstalk, and sold it to Disney. Gilligan will serve as a producer on the live-action project and may possibly direct; Thomas Schnauz (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) has been hired to write the script. Disney made an animated short version of the tale in 1947, starring Mickey Mouse. [Deadline]
