Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon is keeping himself busy in Hollywood! Today, it was announced that Disney grabbed the rights to the upcoming film Ground Control to Major Tom, which Gordon will most likely direct.

Disney has won the rights to the comedy over many other studios who pursued the script. The title references a classic David Bowie song titled “Space Oddity,” but it’s unclear how it will fit with the script, as all plot aspects remain a secret.

Michael De Luca is set to produce the film, with Gordon also being the executive producer.

What do you think of the upcoming film? Any ideas on a plot line?

Thanks to Deadline for the tip.

    Man I do love that song… and I do love Disney.  I’m curious what the plot is!

    I can’t possibly imagine what the plot will be about, considering the song is about a dying astronaut…. Probably a generic spaceship/astronaut/aliens cartoon. I hope they get David Bowie to do SOMETHING in the movie – Soundtrack, acting, anything really.
