“Spotlight” director Tom McCarthy is in negotiations to co-write and direct “Timmy Failure” for Disney Studios.
The book series centers on an eleven-year-old boy who believes he is the best detective in town and runs the great detective agency, Total Failure Inc., with an imaginary polar bear for a partner. He also has a sidekick named Rollo Tookus, who spots all the clues.
Author Stephan Pastis, who penned the acclaimed children’s book on which this is based, is co-writing the script while Jim Whitaker (“A Wrinkle in Time,” “Pete’s Dragon”) is producing.
