Terry Jones to direct BFG?

Can you see the kiddies lining up now? According to a report in the Scottish Daily Mail Terry Jones is in the middle of writing the adapted screenplay of roald dahl’s classic childrens book "The BFG (Big Friendly Giant)". Jones also mentioned he’d be directing. And first casting mention? Sophie Dahl, because "she is the author’s grandaughter and was the basis of the main character Sophie". Thanks to Aint it Cool
