By Movieguide® Staff
SHAZAM! star Zachary Levi added another project to his already full list of upcoming movies.
Writers David Guion and Michael Handelman—known for their work on NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB—join producer John Davis in Sony Pictures’ live-action adaptation of children’s classic Harold and the Purple Crayon.
HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON is an adaptation of Crockett Johnson’s beloved children’s story published in 1955. The imaginative tale follows a 4-year-old boy named Harold, who creates worlds around him with the power of his crayon. The book’s success resulted in six more stories of Harold’s adventures.
It is unclear what role Levi will have in the upcoming movie.
Levi is accustomed to bringing inspiring, family-friendly roles to life on the big screen. His upcoming projects include Jon Gunn’s UNBREAKABLE BOY and the Erwin Brother’s AMERICAN UNDERDOG: THE KURT WARNER STORY.
