Hollywood director (and a personal pet peeve) Brett Ratner is reportedly in talks to direct the remake of The Incredible Shrinking Man. The movie, which is under Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment, will be produced by Brian Grazer. There are reports that Eddie Murphy is already attached to star in the movie.
The Incredible Shrinking Man was first made into a movie in 1957 and it starred Grant Williams. For this remake, the plan is to put a comedic and fantastical spin to it — the movie will tell the story of a Las Vegas magician who has been put under a magic spell that makes him shrink. He now must find a way to reverse the spell cast on him before he gets smaller and smaller and eventually just disappear.
