Fox 2000 Planning A “Mr. Ed” Film

Fox 2000 has acquired feature film rights to the classic 1960s TV series comedy “Mr. Ed” reports Variety.

The live-action family film will feature a real horse with a CG-animated mouth to convey his capability of speech. A writer will soon be sought to pen the script.

David Friendly and Jim Mahoney will produce, Friendly having produced the “Dr. Doolittle” remake for Fox several years ago.
