This looks like it could be a fun fantasy film that will appeal to toy store and magic shop aficianados like us! :)

November 16, 2007 release.

I saw the trailer in front of "Ratatouille" and it looked ... odd. Dustin Hoffman has adopted some sort of odd lisp for the part and he sounded like Ed Wynn.

Zach Helm, the guy who wrote this screenplay, is an amazing writer. This has been his pet project for many years now. When STRANGER THAN FICTION went into production (his last screenplay and damn good movie) came out he got the greenlight for this project. This will also be his directorial debut. I for one will be looking forward to seeing this film, if he's behind it, you can bet it will be very original in both story and technique. Reading STF was a complete joy.
