THR reports that Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visiter, Up) has signed on to write and possibly direct the long in development film based on the Doug TenNapel (creator of Earthworm Jim) graphic novel Tommysaurus Rex. McCarthy will co-write the script alongside John Bland.
McCarthy will write the film "with an eye to direct" as well. The story follows a boy named Ely who finds a cave with a living, 40-foot dinosaur who becomes his new best friend.
McCarthy recently wrapped filming his project The Cobbler, which stars Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman, Steve Buscemi, Ellen Barkin, Method Man, and Dan Stevens.
