Tue, 21 Oct 2008 11:52:43
Warner Brothers and Red Wagon are developing a live-action film based on the legend of Tom Thumb, a popular character from 16th century English folklore who is no bigger than his father's thumb. The film will be simply titled Tom Thumb. Director Kevin Lima, who lists whimsical fantasy fare like Enchanted on his resume, has been hired to helm the film.
The storyline will feature an arrogant knight who is shrunk to six inches tall while protecting a princess. The moral of the story is that his physical handicap helps him learn what it means to be a real hero.
