Magic Castle

Disney is already working on a trip to the Magic Kingdom with Jon Favreau (which also has Pixar involved now), but now 20th Century Fox is taking a journey to the Magic Castle in Hollywood.  It's a historic mansion built in 1909 that serves as the headquarters for the Academy of Magical Arts Inc. (which you might have seen featured in the documentary Make Believe, now on Netflix Instant) and features performances for aspiring and famous magicians. And if you think that just sounds like a huge nerd fest, celebrity magic enthusiasts like Cary Grant, Steve Martin, Johnny Carson and more are in the club.

In fact, Neil Patrick Harris is the president of the Academy. THR reports The Magic Castle has just gained agency representation in order to create a brand for TV, video games, digital media and more. The one we care about is a feature film surrounding the7 001 W. Franklin Ave. museum that's in the heart of Hollywood. At this time, it's not clear what kind of film will be set in the Magic Castle, but the aesthetic of the old mansion would be the perfect setting for some kind of fantasy or horror adventure. Producer Todd Field (Arachnophobia, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Jumanji) has the credits to back-up that kind of movie, so we'll have to wait and see what happens. It would be a great setting for a Night at the Museum 3, and that franchise just happens to be a Fox property, so you never know.
