    Disney gets 'Grandma' rights

    Clete Smith's novel set for family feature

    BY Marc Graser
    Variety

    Disney has picked up the rights to Clete Smith's yet-to-be-published novel "Grandma's Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast" for Mandeville Films to adapt into a family feature.

    Book revolves around a boy who goes to visit his hippie grandmother for the first time and discovers that her inn caters to vacationing aliens, a secret that she has been able to keep from her small town.
    No scribe has yet been tapped to pen the script.

    Studio-based David Hoberman and Todd Liberman will produce the pic. Producer's Mandeville shingle most recently was behind the four-legged laffer "Beverly Hills Chihuahua," which generated $139 million worldwide for the Mouse House. He is also producing Disney's upcoming "Surrogates."

    Novel is a first for Smith, whose action script "Heistwise" placed in a number of screenplay contests, including the Hollywood Nexus and Script Savvy competitions. Rights to the book remain up for grabs.
