It appears, according to unnamed sources, that a production assistant’s mix-up has led to footballer and Stanford alum Richard Kevin Sherman being offered the opportunity to score the next Disney/Pixar film, instead of Disney composer stalwart Richard Morton Sherman.
And what may be an even bigger surprise, Richard (NFL player) Sherman has actually turned in a catalog of songs to Disney execs. However, the results have been deemed “a bad example for children,” despite the obvious, if perplexing, talent he clear talent he has for writing songs quickly.
“The film isn’t titled yet,” said a source close to the situation, “but it’s a lesser-known, untapped Hans Christian Anderson tale. But as of right now, it’s in development hell because of a newly-needed rewrite.”
Richard Morton Sherman, played by either the temp from “The Office” or that annoying kid from “Rushmore,” depending on which source you believe, has not commented on the matter. Disney, too, is trying to shush the story it seems, “feeling more embarrassed than the Monday after ‘John Carter’ opened. They don’t want anything to do with him, and are thrilled that he didn’t do one of those ‘I’m going to Disneyland!’ commercials.”
