The streaming network is on board for a new version of the 1950 classic about a man with an imaginary rabbit friend.
The 1950 film, an adaptation of Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, starred James Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd, a wealthy man with an imaginary friend — a six-foot-tall rabbit named Harvey.
“Shrek 2” writers J. David Stem and David N. Weiss have been tapped to write the script. Fabrica de Cine will produce.
A previous 2009 reboot project from Dreamworks and Fox had tapped Steven Spielberg to direct but did not materialize. The story has, however, been remade for the small screen five times since its 1950 film release.
