Production is from the writer/director of JIMMY NEUTRON: BOY GENIUS John Davis. The movie is based on the animated children's book by John Nickle and tells the story of a bad kid who menaces an ant colony by hosing it's anthill with his watering gun. He's then shrunk to ant size and punished by being forced to work at the ant colony in high heels, a pink tutu and clown make-up. Actually, he's just forced to work but you never know what a vengeful ant is capable of doing. They are, after all, capable of lifting several times their own weight. Makes you think (about what I'm not so sure). In any case, rounding out the cast is Shirley MacLaine, Paul Giamatti, Alan Cumming, Cheri Oteri and Ricardo Montalban in the ant colony and newbie Zach Tyler as the bad kid. Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman will produce through their Playtone Productions with Davis through his DNA Productions. We'll be getting a double dose of Roberts later this year with CLOSER December 3rd and OCEAN'S TWELVE December 10th.
