Adrien Brody is attached to both star in and produce the biopic "Banking on Mr. Toad" says Screen Daily.
The film will be a live-action and CG animated hybrid narrative about author Kenneth Grahame, the creator of the well knownchildren’s book The Wind in the Willows.
The movie will chart Grahame’s relationship with his wife Elspeth, his frequently ill young son Alastair, and the best-selling fictional work he wrote while working as secretary at the Bank of England.
Brian Blessed is already attached to play Grahame's best friend William Furnivall.
Luis Mandoki directs the movie from a script by Timothy W. Haas.
Haas, Richard Hewitt, Sally French, Sharon Lark, Tony Silver and Rob-Green are producing.
Production begins later this year in the U.K.
