Dan In Real Life Director Goes Green

Peter Hedges to direct Disney fable

Peter Hedges, director of Dan In Real Life and Pieces of April, has lined up a "modern-day fable" at Disney called The Odd Life Of Timothy Green.

Not, we assume, to be confused with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, the film is apparently "personal" to Ahmed Zappa, who came up with the idea, but we can't say much more than that since the plot is under more wraps than a pashmina warehouse.

Hedges will write and direct the film - no surprise, since he got his start as a screenwriter on films including About A Boy and What's Eating Gilbert Grape**?** More on this as and when we get a chance to tunnel into the Disney plot vault and steal the details.
