"Marvel Studios has hired screenwriters Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write the script for Dr. Strange. The duo wrote the upcoming Conan, video game adaptation Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and a draft of Jon Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens.
Stephen Strange is a world-renowned but selfish neurosurgeon, until a car accident damaged his hands, preventing him from conducting surgery. Depressed and scouring the world for a cure to his condition, Strange locates a hermit called the Ancient One in the Himalayas. After Strange selflessly attempts to thwart the Ancient One's traitorous disciple, Baron Mordo, he is taught the mystic arts.
The film could be the first one for Marvel Studios that gets distributed through Disney."
Basically, I see this as a more action-packed The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
"Patrick Dempsey is pitching himself for the role of Doctor Stephen Strange, reports Bleeding Cool, who also brings an artist's rendering of the 'Grey's Anatomy' star in the role."
