Variety said the Flight filmmaker will make the big-screen version of Kate DiCamillo's novel about the adventures of a porcelain rabbit.
Published in 2006, the story follows a vain china rabbit owned by a 10-year-old girl which is dropped overboard from the Queen Mary.
He spends time on the ocean floor, before getting a variety of new owners in the 1930-set story.
