That pesky Adam and Eve. They get to run around naked and happy, frolicking amongst the trees and animals. But then that devilish, or rather devil snake, had to come along, tempt Eve with an apple and make her tempt Adam. The actions of the pair lead to hari-kari on their Eden paradise, since they broke God's one lone rule. From there, things continued to get worse. They get jiggy, have some kids, and one kills the other one, bringing death to the world, and we all get to suffer because of it the family's dysfunctional ways.

Now Variety reports that Disney has put a hefty six-figures into a spec purchase for All About Adam, coming from the sophomoric pen of Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons, who already got their Mastermind spec nabbed by DreamWorks. The soon-to-be-script details Adam as he follows Eve "to a modern-day Gotham after they have a lover's quarrel. Adam discovers Satan was behind the breakup." I'm not sure how they'll deal with the existence of Gotham without the whole apple and getting kicked out of Eden thing, or how they can fast-forward so many years, but maybe that'll have to be one of those leap of faith moments. That's all the news that there is for the project, besides the fact that Scott Rudin has signed on to produce the upcoming feature. Since this is Disney, I'd imagine this will be some sort of Enchanted-like story -- equipped with Adam running around with a strategically-placed leaf through the streets of New York City. But maybe Disney will surprise us and defy their convention.
