  • "The Rookie" writer sells pitch to Walt Disney Pictures

    Disney buys pitch from Mike Rich

    'Rookie' writer sells true 'Parent Trap'-ish story

    Rich

    By Michael Fleming
    Variety
    June 12, 2008

    Walt Disney Pictures has acquired an untitled pitch by Mike Rich.

    Studio and writer were vague on the idea, allowing only that it's based on a true story with elements of "Sleepless in Seattle" and The Parent Trap."

    Deal brings Rich back to Disney, where he scripted "The Rookie" and "Secretariat," about the 1973 Triple Crown-winning race horse. Rich's last credit was "The Nativity Story."

    He sold bitumen or resin to Disney? And why?

    This was a classic opportunity for traditional Variety-speak, though, and they missed it. "Rich Pitches Pitch to Mouse House" would have been the ideal one. Granted, it's no "Parker Preps Prod for Pitt Preem" but it'll do.
