Jon Turteltaub to Direct "Beached," About Olympic Swimmer Raised by Whales

Posted: August 29th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jon Turteltaub to Direct "Beached," About Olympic Swimmer Raised by WhalesSubmit Comment
"National Treasure" director Jon Turteltaub has signed on to direct "Beached," which is written by Ted Griffin (Ocean's Eleven, Tower Heist) has been in development since 1997.

"Beached" centers on a chubby 4-year-old child who falls overboard during a family outing and is raised by whales and goes on to become an Olympic swimmer.

Although Betty Thomas (I Spy, Doctor Dolittle) was attached to direct at one point, the project has been shelved for years. No doubt the popularity of swimming at the recent Olympics and NBC's record ratings fueled the project's resurgence.

So he's Tarzan in the aquatic ape department?

I always knew that theory held no water.

Stupid. Whales raising humans. First it was Romulus and Remus being raised by wolves, and then Lindsay Lohan being raised by jackals.
