Almost exactly a year ago, we reported that Disney was interested in creating a movie based on stone statues that came to life even if it wasn’t based on the cartoon show Gargoyles.

According to Variety, that idea is now being solidified as a script by David Elliot and Paul Lovett (who wrote G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra). The pair came to The Mouse with an original concept that has nothing to do with the television cartoon series but shares the exact same high concept conceit.

There’s very little information beyond “stone becoming flesh,” so it’s tough to gauge, but it seems like a fair assumption that it will be an action adventure film aimed at children and at Burger King tie-ins. If that really is the case, Elliot and Lovett are good choices to build a project that can also sell toys.
