Lima to Direct Live-Action Tom Thumb


Warner Bros. and Red Wagon have lined up Kevin Lima (Enchanted) to direct Tom Thumb, a live-action take on the origins of the tiny character.

Red Wagon’s Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher will produce, with Chris Chase executive producing.

The story, written by Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan), is centered on an arrogant knight who’s shrunk to 6 inches while assigned to protect a princess and then discovers what it means to be a real hero.

Variety says Warner Bros. is aiming to develop the film as a tentpole project with worldwide appeal.
