Jordan Peele Pitched a Gargoyles Movie to Disney, And They Said… Nothing?
According to Richard Rushfield in today’s edition of The Ankler, Jordan Peele had a meeting with Disney studios about possibly directing a live action adaptation of the 90s beloved cult animated series Gargoyles. The show specialized in darker storylines while still maintaining the parameters of an animated series. Peele is fresh off his Oscar win for writing the smash hit Get Out. Rushfield speculated in the piece that “Disney is slow walking the decision. It’s hoping, it seems, that they’ll run out the clock, he’ll sign other deals elsewhere, and the project will just fade away.” The piece further speculates that Disney might be making this decision based on some recent failures on the Star Wars side of things and that this animated series doesn’t quite fit into the ready-made box Disney might be looking for at this time.
Mark Reilly and John Rocha sit down to give their thoughts about this news and speculate why they think Disney made this decision. They also speculate what they think might be possible for Jordan Peele if he is not able to get Gargoyles off the ground at Disney.
