Because no book series will go untouched (no, not even the ones we looked at and laughed at during the book fair in third grade before later hearing from our friends that we were wrong and it actually was awesome), Captain Underpants is becoming a movie, and the cast will be led by Kevin Hart and Ed Helms.
According to The Wrap’s exclusive, Hart and Helms will lead the cast along with Nick Kroll, Jordan Peele, and Thomas Middleditch.
From the report, Hart will play the character George Beard, while Middleditch will play Harold Hutchins. As in the books, the two characters who play pranks, hide in their treehouse, and write comic books. But their whole world changes when they accidentally bring the titular Captain Underpants to life. It all happens when a hypnotism experiment involving Principal Mr. Krupp, does not go according to plan. Helms will voice Krupp.
