Sarah Limpet role a rumor

070814LimpetCoverThe many internet articles saying Sarah will be playing a role in the remake of The Incredible Mr. Limpet are either reprints of or based on a report in The Wrap, which our sources say is premature.

The new film, to be directed by Richard Linklater, will be a mix of animation and live action, like the 1964 version, which starred Don Knotts. Warner Brothers has reportedly been working since the eighties on trying to update the story, which is based on Theodore Pratt’s novel, a “humorous fantasy of a man who is transformed into a talking fish.”  The Wrap article says Zach Galifianakis is expected to star as Mr. Limpet, and names being considered for roles Jon Hamm, Kevin Hart, Danny McBride, Josh Gad, Key & Peele– and Sarah.
