There’s an opening in Disney’s schedule for 2014 and a new rumor says that Terry Pratchett could be filling it.
The latest rumor says the House of Mouse is working on a big-screen adaptation of Pratchett’s fourth Discworld novel, “Mort” for 2014.
The book follows the title character of Mort as he interns with Death. Hilarity ensues.
It wouldn’t be the first time Pratchett has been adapted. We’ve seen several British miniseries adapt the author’s Discworld novels the past several years.
The film would be a traditional animated feature, according to the rumors. According to the animation rumor mill, directors Ron Clements and John Musker are preparing storyboards.
