Continuing its commitment in providing entertainment appropriate for the whole family members, Walt Disney Pictures is developing a new family comedy titled "Pool Rats" and has appointed the creative team behind its forthcoming flick "The Game Plan" to work on the project.
Being so, Andy Fickman thus is reuniting scribes Nichole Millard and Kathryn Price to join forces in writing the screenplay for the flick, which he will also direct. Meanwhile, Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray will join them once again to handle producing matters via their Mayhem Pictures.
Project is said to be a semiautobiographical story inspired by Fickman's wild times coaching a neighborhood league swim team during a summer that he says changed both his life and his swimmers. Despite the fact that the real events took place in Houston in the 1980s, the movie will be set in present-day instead.
