The Hollywood Reporter brings word that The Rock’s company Seven Bucks Productions, which he runs with Dany and Hiram Garcia, will produce the family adventure film Teddy and the Guardians of the Night for Netflix. The film is based on an illustration from Greek fantasy artist Alex Panagopoulos, showing a stuffed teddy bear protecting a sleeping kid from an evil thread in her bedroom.

Beau Flynn’s FlynnPictureCo will also produce. Josh Stolberg (Jigsaw, Spiral) and Bobby Florsheim will write the new script, based on the original draft by Luke Passmore (Archenemy). Seven Bucks President discovered the drawing in 2013, saw its potential as a movie and optioned it.

He said: “At Seven Bucks, we’re always on the hunt for content that can help inspire our next big story. From the moment I saw Alex’s incredible drawing, I knew there was something special there that our global audiences could respond to. We’re excited to add to our growing slate with Netflix and share this story with the world.

FlynnPictureCo.’s Scott Sheldon will executive produce and both Chanel Bowling and Ori Marmur will oversee the project.
