Mr. Levy Will Turn ‘Mr. Men’ Into Little Miss Potential Movie Franchise

Monday, February 7 by

Fox is going to transform the Mr. Men series of children’s books into an animated feature film, directed by Shawn Levy (Night At The Museum). No need to panic – I already hit the “Ruining My Childhood” button, and Mr. Emergency Worker will be here shortly with an ambulance, blankets and a dog-eared copy of Mr. Tickle.

The books by Roger Hargreaves have sold over 100 million copies worldwide, so it makes sense that Pac-Man‘s weirdo cousins would end up on the big screen sooner or later. There have already been four TV series, but as far as I know, none of them have horrendously mixed CG with live action, and none of them had an oppressive marketing campaign where every bus stop was plastered with a poster of Mr. Nosey and the tag, “He’s got a nose for trouble.”

Thanks to all his new projects, Mr. Levy is repped by Mr. Ridiculously Wealthy. (Hollywood Reporter)
