Variety reports that out playwright-screenwriter Douglas Carter Beane (As Bees in Honey Drown; To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar) has sold his screenplay Skinner's Eddy to Disney for seven figures. Eddy is a romantic comedy about a girl who returns home to her small town and meets a man who may literally be too good to be true. Gay filmmaker-choreographer Adam Shankman (The Wedding Planner, A Walk to Remember) is slated to direct.
