Deadline reports that Frozen's Josh Gad will once again team with Disney on a new family comedy adventure film. The Book of Mormon star and his writing partner Ryan Dixon will develop the project for the studio.

Gad recently picked up an Annie Award for lending his voice to Olaf the snowman in the Oscar-winning animated film Frozen. It was recently announced that he will star along with Billy Crystal in the new FX series The Comedians and will next be seen on the big screen in Zach Braff's crowdfunded film Wish I Was Here.

Other upcoming roles include that of stand-up comic Sam Kinison in Kinison, a biopic that will be helmed by Larry Charles and produced by David Permut from a script by Rich Wilkes.

Gad starred, co-created and executive produced the 2012 NBC comedy series 1600 Penn and has appeared on Broadway in 'Book of Mormon', for which he received a Tony nomination and '25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.'
