Sam Raimi, the director of Spider-Man and its two sequels, is aligning with Disney. The helmer has agreed to produce The Transplants, an action-adventure comedic superhero story. Raimi and his business partner Josh Donen will produce through their Stars Road Entertainment shingle alongside the Mouse House.
Those involved are keeping plot details tightly under wraps, but they have admitted it will be an ensemble project with a laugh quotient. Many industry insiders consider the Raimi-Disney pairing to be a quirky one, since Raimi is known for horror, comedies, and the Spidey franchise, while Disney traffics in much more wholesome family fare.
