Based on Dave Pilkey’s series of novels of the same name, the film follows two fourth graders who accidentally transform their mean principal Mr. Krupp into the super hero Captain Underpants. The trio go on to protect the world from talking toliets, evil scientists, sewer mutants and giant booger monsters. “Get Him to the Greek” scribe and director Nicholas Stoller adapted the script from Pilkey’s novels. Damon Ross is overseeing the project for Dreamworks.
Letterman is no stranger to Dreamworks as he wrote and helmed “Monsters vs Aliens” and “Shark Tale.” He is also no stranger to Stoller as the two worked together on “Gulliver’s Travels” back in 2010. Letterman is repped by WME.
