Jon Hamm is circling whilst Danny McBride, Sarah Silverman, Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele are in talks for various supporting roles in Richard Linklater's upcoming remake of the fantasy adventure "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Zach Galifianakis stars as the title character, a bearded beach bum trying to save the fish population. When he's turned into a fish, he sets out on an adventure to save his town and the sea world.

Hamm would play the villain, a businessman who mines the ocean floor. McBride and Silverman are in talks for live-action roles, whilst Hart, Key and Peele are expected to voice sea creatures in the movie.

Linklater will direct from a script based on the novel by Theodore Pratt. Shooting will begin either later this fall or early next year depending upon scheduling.
