Andrew Niccol's script follows a New York City street magician whose daughter, because of family circumstances, lives in England.
In exploring a lighthouse one day, the girl discovers a room with magic candles and wishes to be reunited with her father, causing the island of Manhattan to break away and drift across the Pond.
It sounds a bit like James and the Giant Peach, but in reverse. Could have some good imagery, but I want to know a little more about the adventures they could possibly have on an ocean going Manhattan. This could be the second film set on the sea that Will Smith stars in. The first being McG's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
