Mr. Popper’s Penguins – The Movie

 

According to /Film, two new names have been mentioned with Fox’s adaptation of Mr. Popper’s Penguins.  Director Mark Waters of Freaky Friday is a possible director.  Jim Carrey, Owen Wilson and Jack Black’s names have been mentioned as possible stars.

Sigh.

Really?

Sigh.

I was hoping for a quirky interesting film because it’s such a cool book.  Now it looks like star-power, big-budget, CGI-animals type movie.  Let’s hope that I’m wrong since the book deserves better.
