Walt Disney Animation Studios has hired Michael Markowitz (HORRIBLE BOSSES) to pen KING OF THE ELVES, reports Variety. Based on Philip K. Dick's short story, the plot follows a human that is made the king of a group of elves (and one dwarf) after he saves them from a troll attack. Chris Williams (BOLT) is overseeing the development.

Before Pixar joined the Disney ranks, BROTHER BEAR's Aaron Blaise and Robert Walker were set to direct a version for a 2012 release. But after John Lasseter took over, the project was put back into development.

The new version is being eyed for a holiday 2013 release.

Lasseter and Chuck Williams are producing.
