Some casting and fx news this time. First IMDB is reporting that Daryl Sabara has been cast as "Edgar Rice Burrows." (Someone needs to check their spelling.) Sabara is best known as one of the leads in Robert Rodriguez's Spy Kids films and roles in things ranging from Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place to Rob Zombie's Halloween.
The other news is that an outfit called Double Negative has been hired to work on the visual effects for the film. Among their credits are The Dark Knight, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and some upcoming films like Sherlock Holmes and Prince of Persia. Here's their credit list. http://www.dneg.com/projects/projects_list.html
