Disney Wants to Put a Hexum on You

Walt Disney

Coming off of a few years with major box offices hits peppered with a few bombs (remember Around the World in 80 Days and Ice Princess?) to its name, it seems as though Disney is back to its former glory days as the can’t-fail studio. Following up on box office hits like the Pirates and National Treasure franchises, the studio has found a niche in family friendly but still pretty badass action movies.

Hoping to cash in on yet another action-hero franchise, the studio has picked up a new pitch from Oscar Nominee David Arata (Children of Men, Spy Game) for Hexum, of which little plot details have been made available. However, the title character of the movie is supposedly a worst case scenario analyst working for the government.

The movie is being produced by Sean Bailey, the sometimes producing partner of Ben Affleck, through Idealogy.

Sound Off: Is this recent string of Disney hits a fluke or has the studio found its way back to the top?

Currently a sophomore at SUNY Fredonia, Jessica is a TV and Digital Film major with an English minor. A self proclaimed movie fanatic she has known to annoy her movie watching partners to no end by talking through any film, sometimes quoting the movie in its entirety, rambling off trivia and useless facts or otherwise critiquing the movie to no end. Choosing just one movie to be her favorite is too hard, as she enjoys movies in almost any genre. Some of her favorites include Casablanca, The Shining, Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, and just about every Disney movie ever. Jessica also has a habit of watching movies that are truly awful, because sometimes they are so bad, you they become good.
