Fox Developing 'Mr. Men' Film

Briefly: There may already be a TV show or two based on Roger Hargreaves' dozens of Mr. Men books, but there's no reason not to make a movie out of the material. In fact, that's probably a great reason to make the movie. So Shawn Levy's company 21 Laps Entertainment is producing a new animated take on the books that teach lessons to kids through characters like Mr. Happy and Mr. Greedy. No writer or director is set yet, much less any voice talent.

Now, the very important question: how can Fox and Shawn Levy work this around so they can import Mr. Yuk as the villain? Do whatever it takes, guys. [THR]
