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?
