In one of the most delightful news of the month, it seems The Big Friendly Giant also known as the BFG is making a comeback and that will thrill fans of Rolad Dahl!
ET writer Melissa Mathison, veteran super producer Frank Marshall and Dreamworks are planning on making a live-action version of the much loved tale which was originally made into a cartoon way back in 1989.
TV animation studio Cosgrove Hall made a film version of The BFG, which voiced the talents of David Jason as the big man and Amanda Root as Sophie, the miniature-by-comparison herione.
The film has become a massive cult over the years, being discovered by a whole new generation so this news of a live action tale is enough to make you smile for the rest of the night.
This is breaking news so nothing yet to report so I can not confirm if the figure will be CGI but it probably will.
More on this good news when it breaks.
