The Incredible Mr. LimpetSource: THR

Kevin Lima is attached to direct Warner Brothers update of The Incredible Mr. Limpet, a story about a man who turns into a talking fish. The 1964 original starred Don Knotts as 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 has been through several iterations, with Mike Judge attached to direct at one point. Lima is currently also attached to the period sorcery tale The Spook’s Apprentice, the studio’s update of Tom Thumb, titled Thumb, and he’s also on board to direct Universal’s big-screen version of Candyland.
