THR is reporting that “Enchanted” Director, Kevin Lima, will be taking the helm behind another remake that should never be made: The Incredible Mr. Limpet.

Don Knotts starred in the studio’s 1964 original, which centered on the title character, an otherwise bland sort who after his transformation becomes a World War II hero when he helps spot and thwart enemy warships for the Allies.

The new project, which also will be a live-animated blend, has been through several iterations, with Robin Williams and Jim Carrey among the stars for whom it previously had been developed. Mike Judge was at one point attached to direct.
