A Remake Planned of “The Incredible Mr. Limpet”

Posted on January 31, 2014 at 8:00 am

Richard Linklater (“Before Midnight,” “School of Rock”) is going to direct a remake of the Don Knotts fantasy The Incredible Mr. Limpet, made in 1964 but set in the early days of the second World War. It’s the story of a shy fish-loving bookkeeper who turns into a fish and helps the Navy locate German U-Boats.  The original trailer is something of an artifact of its own, featuring television personality Arthur Godfrey.

The film had some innovative use of animation combined with live action.  And its highlight is this wonderful song.

I hope the remake keeps the sweetness of the original.
