Disney has picked up Wouldn't It Be Nice, a sci-fi family comedy pitch from writing-directing team Barry Blaustein and Jason Hefter, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Andrew Gunn is producing via his studio-based Gunn Films.
The story follows a teenage couple who, just before they plan to run away together and pursue their dreams, are magically zapped 20 years into the future, only to discover that their lives didn't necessarily turn out as expected. In their mid-30s but with teenage minds—and dealing with three kids and everyday worries—they learn that maybe they weren't as grown up as they once thought.
Kristin Burr is overseeing for the company. Gunn Films' Ann Marie Sanderlin will exec-produce.
