BREAKING: Disney has paid mid-six figures for Ground Control To Major Tom, a romantic comedy by Butter scribe Jason Micallef that has Seth Gordon attached to direct. Butter producer Michael De Luca will produce this with Underground’s Josh McGuire and Trevor Engelson. Gordon will be exec producer. They are keeping the plot line under wraps, so it’s unclear how David Bowie will be referenced, since the title is a line from his classic song Space Oddity. Several studios chased the comedy. Gordon will next direct Identity Theft with Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman, with production starting Monday on the Universal comedy. WME and Underground brokered the deal.
