It was revealed earlier this year that Walt Disney Pictures has secured the rights to Katherine Applegate's children's book The One and Only Ivan. Today, Variety reports that School of Rock and Nacho Libre scribe Mike White is in negotiations to direct the big screen adaptation.

Illustrated by Patricia Castelao, the Newberry Medal winning book was published in 2011 and is officially described as follows:

Ivan is an easygoing gorilla. Living at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade, he has grown accustomed to humans watching him through the glass walls of his domain. He rarely misses his life in the jungle. In fact, he hardly ever thinks about it at all.

Wow, haven't read that one yet but Iove K.A Applegate. Though I wish someone would make an Animorphs movie.

Mike Newell, the director behind Four Weddings and Funeral and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, has signed on to direct Disney’s adaptation of The One and Only Ivan, the Newbery Medal-winning book written by Katherine Applegate.

Allison Shearmur, who produced the live-action hit Cinderella for the studio and is a producer on Star Wars: Rogue One, is producing the project, which has a script by Mike White (School of Rock).

Disney is in talks with Thea Sharrock, director of “Me Before You,” to helm its movie version of the gorilla story “The One and Only Ivan.”

British director Mike Newell had been attached last year for the project, but is no longer involved. Variety first reported in 2014 that Mike White had come on board to script the adaptation of Katherine Applegate’s children’s story.

I'm guessing this will be Disney's "untitled" October 4, 2019 release.

Like many of us saw coming, the film could get relegated to Disney Plus.

“Helen Mirren as Snickers the poodle” rotfl

I went to Zoo Atlanta this December where the real Ivan spent the last almost two decades of his life. They have a whole memorial put up for him, it was lovely.

^ Surely the characters are stylized differently for the books than they are in the movie? Super cute, though! I'm getting Lumpy vibes!
