You're not going to believe this, but Walden Media is making another movie based on a much-loved children's book. This time, they're undertaking The Water Horse, a novel for grade-schoolers by Dick King-Smith that sounds like a sort of sweet creation story for the Loch Ness Monster. The movie (in which, by the way, the main character seems to have lost his sister -- apparently audiences prefer lonely boys) will be directed by Jay Russell, and all of the effects will by done by Weta Digital and Weta Workshop, who also played that role in a couple movies released ast year that you might have heard about -- King Kong and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I think it's safe to assume that Water Horse, no matter how good or bad it is, will look fantastic.

The sad, lonely lad will be played by Alex Etel, the adorable star of Millions, and Emily Watson and Ben Chaplin are also on board, possibly to play his parents.
