Producers are talking to Zach Galifianakis for the lead role in a remake of The Incredible Mr. Limpet. The original starred Don Knotts (The Andy Griffith Show) as a man who turns into a fish and helps hunt down German submarines during World War II. Kevin Lima (Enchanted) is already slated to direct.
Galifianakis has certainly earned his stripes in the supporting world, so it was only a matter of time before he started getting offered leading roles. This project would mean that the bearded actor would be able to reach out to family audiences.
