Mr. Men get a break from Mr. Fox

20th Century Fox Animation are to team up with Shawn Levy (director of Night at the Museum and the forthcoming robot-boxing-epic, Real Steel) to bring Roger Hargreaves’ beloved Mr. Men to the big-screen. No word on if it’s going to be in 3D though. Here’s hoping that sin is avoided.

Levy is currently signed on as a producer for this fun-loving animated adventure, and his first task is to track down a writer and director for the project. There’s no firm word from anyone involved as to which of the 48 Mr. Men characters will make an appearance in the film, nor if the Little Miss girls will feature.

What sort of a story would you like to see the Mr. Men tackle for their Hollywood début? Maybe introduce a new current-affair-aware character? A Mr. Climate Change? Or a Mr. Middle-East-Peace Envoy? Thoughts below please.
