Jared Hess (“Napoleon Dynamite“) has been hired to direct long-gestating sci-fi live-action family comedy “The Pet” says Variety.

Matt Lieberman who wrote the forthcoming Short Circuit remake concieved the story which centers on a man abducted by aliens, taken to their planet and turned into a family pet.

Tim Dowling performed a recent re-write on the script but with Hess’ involvement that script is expected to get further tweaks.

David Silverman had been attached to direct the film at one point.
