Now, a remake of Jimmy Stewart's black-and-white film is in the works at Netflix. And 'Shrek 2' writers, J. David Stem and David. N Weiss are set to adapt and Penn the film.
In the original, Stewart, who earned an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Elwood P. Dowd, starred as an affluent drunk with an imaginary friend that only he can see - a rabbit named Harvey. Worried that he is going insane, his sister Veta (played by...) tries to have Dowd committed. Hilariously, the doctor assessing Elwood instead finds Veta insane!
The movie was based off Mary Chase's Pulitzer Prize-winning play and has been brought to the small screen over five times.
The original film is currently available to stream on Netflix.
