Disney has set Jason Dean Hall to script an adventure movie project based on the Matterhorn ride, which is going under the working title of The Hill. Justin Springer is producing the project, reports Heat Vision.
"Opened June 1959, the elaborate Matterhorn ride was inspired by Walt Disney's desire for a toboggan-themed roller coaster as well as thoughts he had after an extended trip to Switzerland, the site of the famed mountain. The ride, a centerpiece of the park, was refurbished in 1978, with one of the upgrades being the addition of three automatronic Abominable Snowmen (aka Yetis) who growl at riders.
The idea behind The Hill is to do a thrilling, fast-paced movie centering on five young adventure seekers who, for mysterious reasons, are called to the top of the mountain and encounter a Yetis on the journey down."
No production date has been set.
