Warner Bros resurrects (again) an old property.
Oscar-nominated writer/director Richard Linklater (Before Sunset) is reportedly the leading candidate to take over the director’s chair for the Warner Bros. remake of the 1964 animation/live-action hybrid The Incredible Mr. Limpet. ...
Warners has been toying with the idea of doing Mr. Limpet for fifteen years. Back in the mid-nineties, it was a property in development at Warner Bros. Feature Animation (the corporate division that died a few years after birth.) For a few halcyon months, Jim Carrey was attached to the old Don Knotts role, but the movie never got to ignition for launch.
Perhaps this time they'll reach lift off.
