Jon Turteltaub's Chubby Kid Swimmer Pic Beached Has The Best Synopsis

Turteltaub Beached Swimming

This is for real! Get excited, per THR: "Beached centers on a chubby 4-year-old child who falls overboard during a family outing, is raised by whales and goes on to become an Olympic swimmer." Jon Turteltaub has just signed on to direct; Betty Thomas was previously attached, according to the trade report, though I can see one clear advantage to having Turteltaub behind the camera off the bat. Two words: Three Ninjas. Yeah sure, and National Treasure or whatever. The guy knows kids and extra-curricular athletic activities. Do I smell a franchise or what? [THR]
