ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD, OPEN DIRECTING ASSIGNMENT!
The push to make a movie of Judith Viorst's terrific ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY just got another wad of gum stuck in its hair.
The film was set to go at Disney with Steve Carell starring and LAUREL CANYON's Lisa Cholodenko directing from a screenplay she wrote with Rob Lieber (who's also writing Universal's
apology for second big-screen adaptation of Dr. Seuss's CAT IN THE HAT). But Deadline is now reporting that Cholodenko has ankled the project, leaving Disney somewhat in the lurch as they gear up for a fall shoot.
If Disney wants to make a good version of this movie, they'll take their time and find someone with a lively, childlike imagination (e.g. I'd love to see Jorma Taccone get a shot at something like this). If they just want to get the fucking thing in the can, they'll opt for someone from the Adam Shankman School of Executive Appeasement. That would be a shame, as this classic children's book deserves much better.
ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY is being produced by Shawn Levy and Lisa Henson. I actually wouldn't be surprised if Levy steps in to direct.
