"Thomas the Tank Engine" Movie Gets Director and Poster

"Thomas the Tank Engine" Movie Gets Director and PosterSubmit Comment
Back in 2009, HIT Entertainment announced that the company was planning to develop a big screen version of "Thomas the Tank Engine" and had hired "Shrek the Third" writer Josh Klausner to pen the script.

Now comes word that HIT has brought on Shane Acker (9) to direct the film. "The tale will revolve around a pre-teen boy who has drifted apart from his father," the helmer explained. "The son is introduced into this world of Sodor, a place his father visited as a child but can't remember. There is a bonding experience."

Thomas represents the world's most popular preschool property, with more than 100 million books and wooden train accessories sold globally. HIT is also planning a "Barney" and "Bob the Builder" movies.

Check out the first "Thomas the Tank Engine" promo poster below.

A David the Gnome movie would be better.

Oh, thank god. At first I thought it was "Barney: The Movie" ... and figured that if they intentionally wanted to have kids blind their eyes, nothing says STAY AWAY more than a movie based on a children's show coming from PBS.

Does this mean :

a. Ringo Starr has a career again ?

b. George Carlin's corpse can be recovered from the grave and tied up with piano wire like a marionette and set in the background ?


Oh, my bad. I'm thinking of Sun Time Station or some sh*t.

Max- What do you mean? Ringo Star sells eggs in Vietnam for a living, he's earning the big bucks now.
