    Sam Raimi, Disney team for 'Transplants'

    Project described as comedic superhero story

    Sam Raimi is going Disney. The studio has picked up "The Transplants," an action-adventure pitch from scribes Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson for the filmmaker to produce via the Stars Road Entertainment banner he runs with partner Josh Donen.

    The parties are keeping a tight lid on the high-concept project, though it is described as a four-quadrant ensemble superhero story with a comedic bent.

    Epstein and Jacobson, best known for "Not Another Teen Movie," were planning to execute their idea via a comic book, but Disney exec Kristin Burr was so keen on it that the company pre-emptively picked up "Transplants." The deal is in the mid- to high-six figures.

    Stars Road executive Russell Hollander brought the project to the studio.
    Epstein and Jacobson, repped by UTA and H2F Entertainment, most recently wrote the action comedy "Crash Test Dummies" for Barry Josephson at Fox. They also directed and co-wrote the upcoming Dimension release "Extreme Movie," which stars Michael Cera.

    The Disney-Raimi pairing is eyebrow-raising: "Transplants" marks the first Disney project for the filmmaker, who is known more for his horror fare and "Spider-Man" movies, not to mention his comedic sensibilities that attract the geek audience. Disney, on the other hand, isn't exactly known for its edge, with fare that plays fairly broad.

    Still, a few projects and names pop from the Disney slate, such as the Bruce Willis sci-fi actioner "Surrogates" and the Tim Burton-directed "Alice in Wonderland," which is sure to attract literary hipsters as much as families.

    This could be interesting, as long as it goes more Evil Dead than Spiderman ;-)

      I :love: Sam Raimi

      ahem... Anyhoo, he's got a great sense of comedy so I can't wait to this, after Drag Me To Hell, of course.
