Mr. Popper's Penguins is being made into a movie with Jim Carrey. For a long time I had thought this book would make a good movie and was curious why it wasn't being made. Especially with the way Hollywood will take any book and try and make it a movie whether it should be or not (I'm talking to you Eat Pray Love).
If you read the book, you wouldn't pick Carrey as the lead. But oh well.
Ameilia Bedelia fans- wouldn't Maggie Gyllenhaal be a good choice? Another book I would think Hollywood would turn into a movie. And Mrs. Piggle Wiggle.
