Director Kevin Lima (Enchanted), who is currently in pre-production of The Spook’s Apprentice, a medieval fantasy for Warner Bros, already has his next project lined up. Also for Warner, it will be a new interpretation of the medieval folk tale Tom Thumb. Interestingly written by Robert Rodat (The Patriot), the untitled film departs considerably from the classic tale.
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.
No word on when production will start or as to who may star, but Warner believes this will be one of their big money earners whatever the year is when it’s released. Tom Thumb will apparently be a CGI creation while the rest of the film will be live-action…it sort of works with animals but will it be realistic enough for a human being, whether he’s tiny or not?
