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.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4C3nQmWmfJw
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.
