Disney Acquires Untitled Female Detective Pitch

     September 27, 2011


Back in March, Disney picked up the rights to Agatha Christie’s detective character Miss Marple, and now it seems that one sleuth just wasn’t enough for The Mouse House. The studio has acquired an untitled pitch from Ashley Bradley that involves yet another female detective. Plot details are scarce at this point, but Heat Vision reports that the story revolves around a young woman who discovers that she’s the descendant of a legendary gumshoe and is tasked with picking up the family trade. Marc Guggenheim, who co-wrote this summer’s Green Lantern and was a producer on Flash Forward and Eli Stone, is set to produce the untitled detective pic. Disney’s Marple film will be set in contemporary times, so one wonders if the studio will take a different approach to this mystery flick in order to set the two apart.
