Linklater’s ‘Incredible Mr. Limpet’ Looking to Add a Slew of Funny People

Grantland

On Richard Linklater’s horizon (now that he’s visited Do You Like Prince Movies? and everything) is a remake of 1964’s The Incredible Mr. Limpet. It’ll star Zach Galifianakis as a marine preservationist turned into a fish, and he might get some super-starry company soon. The list, per The Wrap: Danny McBride, Sarah Silverman, Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and Jon Hamm. Hart, Key, and Peele would voice animated sea creatures, like they were born to do.
