According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kevin Lima will be directing Warner Bros.' update of The Incredible Mr. Limpet.

The film is about a man who becomes a talking fish.

The original from 1964 starred Don Knotts as the title character. He was a regular guy who, once he transforms, turns into a World War II hero that helps pick out enemy warships for the Allies.

That film was a live action-animated hybrid that was directed by both Arthur Lubin and Robert McKimson.

This new version will be "a live-animated blend."
