Disney Creates "Paradise" on Earth



Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer will make a film feature about Islamic terrorist faction Abu Sayyaf based on Mark Bowden's article "Jihadists in Paradise."

Signing another deal with producer Jerry Bruckheimer after their hugely successful pact in "Pirates of the Caribbean" series, Disney is about to develop a film feature titled "Jihadists in Paradise" based on Mark Bowden's article of the same name following its acquisition on the screen rights to the work.

The project thereby puts Bruckheimer back in business with Bowden as the renowned producer previously produced 2001's "Black Hawk Down", which Ken Nolan adapted from Bowden's book. It has been revealed that Bowden himself will pen the script for the picture.

Published in the March issue of Atlantic Monthly, the article details the emergence of the Islamic terrorist faction Abu Sayyaf and one of its leaders, Aldam Tilao aka Abu Sabaya, in the Philippines. Together with his armed thugs, Tilao took hostages of 20 people, including three Americans, one of which he beheaded, in 2001 before eventually being killed in a shoot out with Philippine special forces the following year.
