Disney Pictures is understood to be making a deal for Marc Forster to direct “Imagining Nathan,” an individual familiar with the negotiations has told TheWrap.
Zucker Productions and Mayhem Pictures are producing the film which revolves around a character (the titular Nathan) who, as a six-year-old, retreats into a fantasy world after his parents are killed.
Fast-forward thirty years later, his sister tries to help him escape his demons.
As an adult, Nathan has been diagnosed with a condition which causes him to live in a cartoon-like world.
