stephen-gaghanDisney has closed a deal to acquire an untitled pitch that Oscar-winning Traffic writer Stephen Gaghan will write to direct, reports Deadline. Scant details are available currently, but word is that it is an adventure film involving Charles Darwin, the British naturalist and geologist who made breakthroughs in the areas of evolution and natural selection.
Darwin had a bit of that Indiana Jones-like swashbuckling spirit in him, and in his formative years he took a daring five-year voyage in 1831 on the ship HMS Beagle, to chart the coastline of South America. He made many discoveries along the way which harnessed the later theories that would make him one of the most influential figures in human history.

Gaghan is repped by CAA and attorney Steve Warren.
