Jon Hamm In Talks For Remake Of The Incredible Mr. Limpet
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.09.2014

The Wrap reports that Richard Linklater (Boyhood) has started casting the Warner Bros. remake of The Incredible Mr. Limpet. Jon Hamm is in talks for a live-action role. Zach Galifianakis, Danny McBride, Sarah Silverman, Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele are also in talks for various roles. Linklater will direct from a script based on the novel by Theodore Pratt. The original film was released in 1964. It starred Don Knotts as Limpet and was directed by Arthur Lubin. Bill Gerber (Grudge Match) will produce the remake with Gerber Pictures, along with Akiva Goldsman of Weed Road.

The film has been in development for over twenty years. Production could begin as early as this fall once talent deals close and if the cast and Linklater's schedules align. The live-action scenes may not be filmed until early 2015. Linklater has already started working with Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta (Waking Life, A Scanner Darkly) on testing rotoscoped animation concepts.

Galifianakis will likely star as Larry Limpet, a bearded beach bum trying to save fish when he's turned into one. He then goes on an adventure to save his town and the sea world. Hamm is being considered to play the human villain, a businessman who mines the ocean floor. McBride and Silverman are in talks for live action roles while Hart, Key and Peele are in talks to voice sea creatures. Key confirmed last month that he will be involved along with Peele. The two are currently filming the fourth season of their Comedy Central series. Key & Peele.
