Turteltaub to direct Small World

Jon Turteltaub is to direct a movie version of Disney's It's A Small World.

The filmmaker will direct from a script by Jared Stern and will also be a producer on the feature film adaptation of the much-loved theme park attraction, reported Deadline.

The ride, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, sees people taking a boat journey past colourful dolls from all over the world, who are singing the titular theme song.

It can be found at five Disney resorts worldwide.

Few details about the film are available, but according to Deadline it is "envisioned as a potential franchise for the studio".

Turteltaub has previously directed films including While You Were Sleeping and National Treasure.
