Disney has just announced that it will fund and release a dark documentary about the relationship of family musical composers Robert and Richard Sherman (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins). According to Variety, The Boys will be directed and produced by Jeff and Gregg Sherman, sons of Robert and Richard.
Ben Stiller's Red Hour and Permut Presentations' David Permut will executive produce the project. Stiller also hopes to use the documentary as the template for a feature biopic that would allow him to play Robert Sherman.
The Boys is scheduled to be released later this year.
