Walt Becker will direct a big screen adaptation of his own book "Link" for Walt Disney Pictures.
Apparently pretty satisfied with the work of Walt Becker in its biker comedy "Wild Hogs", Walt Disney Pictures has once more hired the Hollywood-born filmmaker to helm its new big screen project entitled "Link."
Based on Becker's 1998 novel of the same name, the flick will be an action adventure comedy that revolves around a paleontologist and maverick scientist who embark on a search of the missing link. While a screenwriter is still in search, it is learned that Mandeville partners David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are both set to produce.
Pic is expected to be Becker's next project after "Old Dogs", of which filmmakers are currently in negotiations with Robin Williams to have him in the film's cast alongside John Travolta. As for Disney, the company reportedly is also in the process to pursue a sequel to "Hogs" with core cast members all working on deals to return and Brad Copeland back to pen the script.
