According to Variety, Walt Disney Pictures and Offspring Entertainment have bought spec script Flight Risk from scribe Kyle Long for $200,000 against $400,000.

The action comedy is about a hapless young man who's hired by a wealthy father to escort his unusually rebellious 11-year-old son across state lines to a school for troubled kids.

The script was in play at several studios, but Offspring's Jennifer Gibgot credited Disney's Kristin Burr with acting quickly so Offspring could negotiate for it.

Long has recently finished Tommy's Kitchen for Michael Kuhn's Qwerty Films; script is a feature adaptation of Jamie's Kitchen, the Blighty reality show starring chef Jamie Oliver.
