Kung Fu Panda 2 duo Glenn Berger and Jonathan Aibel have been hired to redraft Wish List, a comedic fantasy starring Reese Witherspoon for Walt Disney Pictures.
The film was originally conceived in 2001, with a male at the center of this story, which will now revolve around a successful career woman who unexpectedly finds all of her childhood dreams coming true. Glenn Berger and Jonathan Aibel are rejiggering the plot so that it will now be told from a female point-of-view. (Good thing they didn't hire female writers for that, huh?)
Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray (Fever Pitch, The Rookie) will produce Wish List.
Glenn Berger and Jonathan Aibel will move foreword on the project as soon as they complete the Candy Land script for Hasbro (another project with a lead female protagonist).
