A New Look at Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH

Neil Burger is pitching a movie script based on Robert C. O’Brien’s Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. Not a remake of the classic film, but a new project taken from the original source material. It is expected to be a combination of live action and CGI animation.

The Secret of NIMH, directed by Don Bluth, came out in 1982.

It featured the voice talents of Dom DeLuise as Jeremy, Shannen Doherty as Teresa and Wil Wheaton as Martin.

Mr. O’Brien’s original book, a 1972 Newbery Medal winner, told the story of a young widow mouse who must reach down inside herself to find the courage to save her sick son from an impending disaster.
