Bad news about the Spy School movie — for now

Hey everyone –

I know you have been waiting a long time for an update about the Spy School movie — and I am sure this is not what you were hoping for.  It’s certainly not what I was hoping for.

After 54 weeks of doing nothing with the movie script, Disney decided that they were not going to move forward with the Spy School movie.

Why?  I don’t really have a great answer for that.  I was told that Disney had some concerns with the story involving kids in real danger — which you’d think they would have been able to figure out was part of the plot long ago, given the title.

Sadly, this kind of thing happens a lot in Hollywood.  As I keep saying, it is very hard to get a movie made.

This does not mean the movie will never get made.  My agents can now try to set the project up at another movie studio or streaming service.  We will see what happens.

In the meantime, feel free to write angry letters to Disney or cancel your Disney + accounts in protest.

  1. Disney is making a huge mistake. If they can’t see that this is a great opportunity that’s their loss. Once the movie has been made and explodes they will realize what a loss it truly was.

    Is it possible that you could talk to someone else who got a movie production company to make a movie and ask them how they convinced the studio?

    I have agents whose entire job it is to get movies made. They know how this is done. In fact, I have had movies made before. It’s just a weird business.

    On Amazon there’s a picture of the back of SS 10. There is a description on the back and the last sentence says “ you never know when watermelons may come in handy.” What does that mean?

  5. I am a huge fan of the spy school books and it is to bad that Disney is to blind to see the potential here. On a lighter note we are all very exited for the release of project-x:)

  6. Why Disney???They Have Made Many Movies With Kids In Danger But Why Not This One…?? I’m Sure They Have Another Reason, The Thing With Kids In Danger Is Just A Cover Up! You Can Try Paramount Or Warner Bros!!!I Don’t Know But I Sure Know That When The Movie Blows Up And You Are A Billionaire Disney Will Be Crying And They Will Deserve It! I Hope You Find A Way To Make It.
