Walden Media has acquired the rights to turn Flat Stanley into a movie, reports Deadline. The plan is to shoot in live-action and then add the character of Flat Stanley in afterwards using visual effects.
The Flat Stanley books are a series of children’s adventures originated in the 1960 which tell the story of the titular character. He gets flattened one night and has to live a life in 2D while the rest of the world happily carries on in 3D. He uses his new-found flatness to his advantage, however.
