The film is produced by Shawn Levy ( Night at the Museum , Date Night , Real Steel ), Emmy nominee and CEO of the Jim Henson Company Lisa Henson , and 21 Laps Entertainment President Dan Levine ( The
Internship , Along Came Polly , Freedom Writers ). It's executive produced by industry veteran Philip Steuer ( Saving Mr. Banks , Oz: The Great and Powerful , The Chronicles of Narnia trilogy) and
Jason Lust ( Whip It! , The Waiting Game ). Disney's Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander as he experiences the most terrible and
horrible day of his young life-a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his
disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he's not alone when his brother, sister, mom and dad all find themselves living
through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn't had one. Director Arteta 's key filmmaking team includes cinematographer
Terry Stacey ( 50/50 , Salmon Fishing in the Yemen ), two-time Oscar-nominated production designer Michael Corenblith ( The Blind Side , Saving Mr. Banks , HBO's Game Change ), and two artists with
whom he has previously collaborated: Oscar-nominated film editor Pam Martin ( The Fighter , Little Miss Sunshine , Youth in Revolt ) and veteran costume designer Nancy Steiner ( Little Miss Sunshine
, Lost In Translation , The Good Girl , Youth in Revolt ). Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day , published in 1972, was written by Judith Viorst and illustrated by Ray Cruz.
The endearing, enduring classic (with more than 2 million copies in print) became an ALA Notable Children's Book while also winning a George G. Stone Center Recognition of Merit, a Georgia Children's
Book Award, and distinction as a Reading Rainbow book.
