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.
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.
