    Walt Disney and Scott Rudin Prods. are planning to have "Hours of Fun," hiring John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to rewrite Greg Pace's family comedy screenplay.

    The tentatively titled "Fun" is the story of two childhood friends who ordered a slew of novelty toys (such as X-ray glasses, Sea-Monkeys and transforming robots) from the back pages of their late-'70s comic books. Thirty years later, the toys begin living up to their wild advertising claims, forcing the pair to save their town from the ensuing chaos.

    "Bones" star Francis Daley (known for his role on "Freaks and Geeks") and Goldstein ("The New Adventures of Old Christine") sold their comedy spec script "The $40,000 Man" to New Line last year. The studio set it up at Benderspink and signed Terry Zwigoff to direct. Pace previously drafted a remake of "The Tingler" for Columbia.
