Steve Martin’s career started with Disney working at Disneyland in the 1950s, and the company has been a recurring theme throughout his career backing movies such as Father Of The Bride and Bringing Down The House.
Now Martin and Disney are reteaming for the comedy Magic Camp, according to THR. It really does take him back to his roots, as his Disneyland job included working at the Main Street Magic Shop, demonstrating tricks to potential customers.
In Magic Camp, Martin will play ‘a straight-laced banker who returns to Magic Camp, a camp he attended as a shy child. This time he is a counselor who makes it his mission to improve the lives of all the kids while keeping an eye on his ultimate prize, the top spot at the Golden Wand competition’.
Steve Martin wrote the most recent version of the screenplay alongside Stu Zicherman. No director is currently attached.
