Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn Get Supernatural Re-Imagining

While re-imagining well-known fairy tales such as Snow White are all the rage in Hollywood, you can now add Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn to the list of classic characters getting a makeover. While the storyline is being kept under wraps, Paramount has picked up a script from Bedtime Stories scribe Andy Burg titled Huck.

The film revolves around the characters created by Mark Twain in his 1876 novel, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and three additional books. The project is being described as a re-imagining in the vein of Snow White and the Huntsman, focusing on Tom and Huck as adults. There's also supernatural elements in the script, though what exactly is unknown.
 
No director has been attached yet, but the project does have the support of Rise of the Planet of the Apes producers Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark.
 
A lot will depend on how the two Snow White re-imaginings, Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman perform at the box office, before any additional re-imagined versions of anything hit theaters. There are plans of re-imagined version of Peter Pan, Cinderella and let's not forget Michael Bay's much-publicized Ninja Turtles movie.
