From Paul Gilligan’s blog comes news that his feature, Pooch Cafe has been optioned by Sony Animation to be made into a CG feature film. He notes that Sony’s two previous forays into computer-animated movies include Open Season (which Steve Moore, creator of In the Bleachers was an executive producer and co-creator) and last year’s Surf’s Up.
Over the next 12-18 months some preliminary work will commence, things like story and character designs, before a decision is made about proceeding into full production. From what Iâ??ve figured out so far this process can be quite glacial, but Iâ??ll post regular updates as we go along so we can all experience the mechanics of developing a comic strip for the big screen (or however far we get). Sweet biscuits! This could be fun.
Sweet biscuits indeed.
