Kevin Lima Helming The Incredible Mr. Limpet


Enchanted director Kevin Lima is attached to direct Warner Bros.’ update of The Incredible Mr. Limpet, a story about a man who turns into a talking fish, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Don Knotts starred in the studio’s 1964 original, which centered on the title character, an otherwise bland sort who after his transformation becomes a World War II hero when he helps spot and thwart enemy warships for the Allies.

The picture was a live action-animated hybrid, with Arthur Lubin directing the live sections and Robert McKimson helming the animated parts.

The new project will also be a live-animated blend.
