Walden Media has acquired film rights to Jeff Brown’s children’s book series “Flat Stanley” about a two-dimensional person stuck in a 3D world says Deadline.
The adventures follow Stanley Lambchop, a kid who is given a bulletin board by his father to put above his bed. One night it falls off and flattens him. He’s fine other than the fact he’s now two-dimensional.
He can now can slip under doors, pose as a kite, and solves an art heist by posing as a wall painting.
The film will be shot live action, with visual effects being employed to turn the lead character into a literally flat hero. John Carls will produce.
