by Robert C. O'Brien
The Rats of NIMH is an upcoming American animated dark fantasy adventure film directed by James Madigan in his directorial debut, based on a screenplay by Michael Berg. A remake of the 1982 film, it is an adaptation of Robert C. O'Brien's 1971 children's novel Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH.
In July 2009, Paramount Pictures set Neil Burger to write the script and Cary Granat to produce the film based on the novel Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. On March 4, 2015, Deadline Hollywood reported that MGM had re-acquired the rights to produce a new film based on the original book. The film will be produced by the team of Daniel Bobker and Ehren Kruger, with screenplay by Ice Age series writer Michael Berg. It will be James Madigan's directorial debut. It is planned as a CGI/live action hybrid "à la The Smurfs and Alvin and the Chipmunks", and will be "an origin story in which an imperiled mouse protagonist befriends a comical crew of lab rats as they turn hyper-intelligent. They escape a secret laboratory and become the great minds of vermin civilization, forced to outwit the humans hot on their tails." The studio plans to turn the novel into a family franchise. In April 2019, the Russo brothers signed on as producers for the remake.
