Robert Zemeckis is set to direct the big-screen adaptation of children's novel The Miraculous Journey Of Edward Tulane, according to reports.

Variety said the Flight filmmaker will make the big-screen version of Kate DiCamillo's novel about the adventures of a porcelain rabbit.

Published in 2006, the story follows a vain china rabbit owned by a 10-year-old girl which is dropped overboard from the Queen Mary.

He spends time on the ocean floor, before getting a variety of new owners in the 1930-set story.
