Disney has preemptively grabbed the high-concept pitch Happy Little Family from Patrick Doody and Chris Valenziano.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story centers on a family that is turned into a popular set of dolls which must then work together to survive the dangers they encounter in their newfound state and find a way to reverse a wish gone awry.
Doody and Valenziano are writer-producers for televised award shows, and dipped their pens into dramatic fare with Sci Fi Channel's horror film Bugs! and also wrote the video game Silent Hill: Homecoming for Konami.
No production date has been set.
