Michael Vukadinovich has reportedly signed on to write a new screenplay for the movie and the rights have moved from WB to TriStar. WB sat on the project so long that their screenwriter and director left the project. With kid's properties making money non-stop it's weird they let it go, but here's to Tristar getting the ball rolling again so we can all find our ticks.
