Walt Disney Pictures has acquired the rights to Patrick Carman's children's novel Floors, with Jason Filardi (Bringing Down The House) set to write the adaptation.
The story follows "an emotionally stunted son" who inherits his father's zany hotel, described as "the coolest and craziest hotel in the world." He must go on a series of adventures within the building, to prevent it from self-destructing. Patrick Carman will serve as the executive producer. The book is said to be in the same vein as Night at the Museum and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Patrick Carman has written over 30 books, which have been translated into over 20 languages. Walt Disney Pictures Executive Vice President Kristin Burr is overseeing the project for the studio.
Jason Filardi made his screenwriting debut with Disney's Bringing Down The House starring Steve Martin and Queen Latifah, which he followed up with the body-switching comedy 17 Again starring Zac Efron and Matthew Perry.
