'Huck And Tom': Mark Twain's 'Tom Sawyer' And 'Huckleberry Finn' Gets Another Movie Adaptation

03/21/2012 06:08 pm ET | Updated May 21, 2012

Mark Twain may have published "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" eight years before "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," but don't tell that to Paramount.

But! There's a catch: The story will feature Sawyer and Finn as grown-ups, and include "supernatural elements." (Initiate mass groan from literature aficionados.)

"Huck and Tom" is the latest in a long line of Sawyer-Finn film adaptations, and is not to be confused with "Tom and Huck," the 1995 film with Jonathan Taylor Thomas, nor "Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn," the upcoming flick starring Joel Courtney ("Super 8") that Variety reported on last year.

"Huck and Tom" currently has no release date.
