Another "Definitive Remake" In the Works.

The story of Fern Arable, her pig Wilbur, and Charlotte, Wilbur's talented "ghostwriter," is the very first thing I remember having read to me as a child, and is indirectly responsible for my having moved to here(Charlotte's Web led to Stuart Little which made the natural progression to Trumpet of the Swan...I just had to see if there were really swan boats and a Ritz Carlton in Boston). As lovely as the first film adaptation was, what makes the story is White's elegant, dry New Yorker style tailored for kids. I can't imagine this one doing any better, to be honest.

Don't even get me started on this one.
