Fox 2000 is taking a bet that our current cultural nostalgia for the '60s will carry over to the box office. The studio is planning an adaptation of "Mr Ed," the 1960s show starring the eponymous talking horse, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The studio has acquired the rights to the popular TV series, and plans on turning it into a live-action family film. Just like in the show, the movie will use an actual horse to do the talking, and the studio plans to use CGI to animate the animal's mouth.
Fox 2000 doesn't have a writer or director attached to the project, but it is known that David Friendly of Friendly Films and Jim Mahoney are on board to produce. Friendly previously produced "Little Miss Sunshine" for Fox.
Considering how well family films starring various members of the animal kingdom have been doing at the box office lately, do you think this is a wise move?
Sarah jessica parker is one of the most talented actress today. i really like her. `

Oh, poor Mr. Ed! Did I hit a nerve! I have no problem with men. Obviously, you have a problem with everyone! Maybe if you had a special person in your life, you wouldn't be so bitter! No wonder beautiful vixen doesn't want anything to do with you! So sad to be you!
Yep my men are castrated also. i cant seem 2 get any f*(king going on that why im a mean n ugly and bitter c***-u*./n*..'t
It means castrated c**/u*'n*'/t. like the horse u hav at the barn is what it meant cuz u cant get a man or even handle a wild horse. C/*u/*n*t i wont f*(k you if ur were the last thing on this earth
Sorry to disappoint Mr. Ed. Wrong again! Not so much fun when the horse shoe is on the other hoof, is it! Keep trying, though! Obviously, you have no idea what a gelding is!
Oh, Mr. Ed I see you're still up to your old trix! Yep, you're the perfect "horse" for this movie, alrite! ;-)
u know a lot about horses. The horse u have back at the barn that u ..uh, f*(k because no man wants you is gelding b!t(h. So ur happy cow..lol
Mr. Ed, you are probably a gelding. Do you know what that is? Give it up on B. Vixon. She has made it pretty clear that you aren't the stallion for her!
@missy-lol i got a pair girl. would u like 2 taste? nice n a slight taste of salt. try not hav u choke on it lmao. U cant get use 2 it bc im still tryin 2 win my 1 true luv on here
Sorry Mr. Ed. didn't mean to offend you! I know I don't want to do that. You took the name. And as everyone knows, horses are full of crap, because they are a horse, of course! I don't take to being told to shut up, either. You better grow a pair, because this gal doesn't back down!
@missy-if u dont want 2 get troll you best keep that trap of urs shut
why is that @mad? why would u that man?
Good one, Mad! Good one, DGreenleaf! Made me chuckle!
They're making the Ann Coulter story??
The original Mr. Ed was a horse. The Marquee Mr. Ed only resembles the horse's a$$!
Hey Mr. Ed of Marquee land! You better get some royalties or something, ya know? :o
I LOVE Mr. Ed. But he has to have the same voice, otherwise you've lost all the baby boomers.
This will be terrible, just like every other POS movie based on a TV show whose premise ran thin 40 years ago.
Starring Sarah Jessica Parker!
For crying out loud - PLEASE STOP REDOING TV SHOWS!!!!!!!! It never ends well. EVER. I can only think of only one that was even ever-so-slightly faithful to the original and mildly watchable. That leaves hundreds of others that completely suck.
Hey, ya know, you could hire several WRITERS with actual ideas for a fraction of the cost.
They did this already in the 90s with Bobcat Goldwait...
Alright, Mr. Ed wherever you are, you're getting a movie treatment! Aren't you stoked!? See, I told you naming yourself after a talking horse would pay off! OK, I didn't actually say that but I thought it! Huh, what? They're remaking the old horse series into a movie? Uuhh, nevermind, carry on, forget I mentioned it! (Lol!)!!
This will probably be one of the most boring live action films of all times,but they're turning all of the other old tv shows
into movies so why not.
LOL!!! Now we're talking! The KING gets his TV show again! F*(k all u MFs!! Eat my s(um
I hope the reboot is like "The Racist Mr Ed" on Chappelle's Show.
@ everyone about..... this is classic stream, you should all be proud, this is what being a troll is all about.
btw, I'm fk'n FIRSTY!!!!!
Mr Ed is available for kiddy parties. And for an extra $100 the children will get ice cream cones into which Mr Ed will load after load of warm delicious doo doo cremes so COME ON PARENTS!!! Its for the kids!!
Wilber the talking pig !
MR. ED IS THE DEVIL ! A TALKING HORSE ! THIS IS DEVIL WORSHIPING STUFF.
