Who says creativity is dead in Hollywood?

Feast your eyes on the plot for the new film “Beached” actually under development over at Fox 2000 studios:

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.

I can just see hear the elevator pitch: “You know children that are sometime raised by wolves? Now imagine a big Hollywood film that centers on that – but instead, it’s with whales. BOOM.”

Not surprisingly, this film has been in development since 1997 – but the addition of director Jon Turteltaub (“National Treasure” series) has suddenly jump-started things. The Hollywood Reporter, who nabbed the scoop, also theorizes that the popularity of swimming during the summer olympics may have fueled interest.

What do you think? Would you see “Beached.” I’m tempted, if only to figure out how the writers plan on whales somehow raising a human child. Wolves, sure – but whales? Make it so, Hollywood.
