From the guy who made "Man on Wire". Excellent documentary.
For those that don't know Nim is about a baby chimp that is raised as a human and taught sign language to see how it develops communication skills. I vaguely remember hearing something about this in the 90's. Like Wire, it is a real life story that feels like something imagined for a movie.
If the loads of CGI are done in an appropriately cartoony and whimsical style, then I'm down. The Oz adaptations Marvel is putting out with art by Skottie Young have been great. It'd be cool to see some of his designs be used.
