Deposed Disney chairman Michael Eisner may be leaving his fellow “castmembers” come October, but don’t expect him to wile away his days at the Bel-AirCountry Club or that massive beachfront compound he’s been building inMalibu. A source very close to Eisner’s family said that the recently deposed exec is planning to start a movie, TV, and videogame production company with histhree sons: Sahara director Breck, 35, Eric, 31, and Anders, 26. Therecould even be a place in the venture for Eisner’s longtime pal BarryDiller, the source said. (Diller declined to comment on his buddy’s“plans or agenda.”) Asked about the company, Eric Eisner, who iscurrently producing a new videogame show set to air on ESPN (which is owned byDisney), would only say, cryptically, that “The best is yet tocome.” Disney spokeswoman Xenia Mucha, on the other hand, called thereports “ridiculous and unfounded,” insisting that “Mr. Eisnerhas not decided what he’s going to do after Disney.”
