Charlotte's Web: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gary Winick, who helmed 13 Going on 30, has signed on to direct the British children's classic "Charlotte's Web" for the Kerner Entertainment Co. and Paramount Pictures. Karey Kirkpatrick has been brought in to revise the adaptation -- written by Susannah Grant -- of E.B. White's classic.

The film has plans to be presented as a live-action/photorealistic CG animation picture. (The book was previously made into an animated film in 1973 by Paramount Pictures and Sagittarius Prods., which is owned by Bronfman.)
