[Movies] Warner Bros. Forms Animation Think Tank
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.07.2013

Warnr Bros. Pictures has announced that they have formed a feature animation creative consortium in order to develop and produce high-end animated films. Warner Bros. Pictures Group president Jeff Robinov made the announcement today, revealing that the think tank will set otu to release one film per year under Warner Bros.' name. Among those involved will be John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, (Crazy, Stupid, Love.), Nicholas Stoller (The Muppets), Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and Jared Stern (Mr. Popper's Penguins).

The filmmakers will be working both individually and as a collective, supporting each other artistically in the making of the films. They will also continue to write and direct live-action movies.

Robinov said of the move, "Warner Bros. has an extraordinary legacy in the world of animation, including some of the most enduring characters in cinema history. Looking to the future, we have now gathered some of the best and brightest talents in the industry to help us grow and broaden that legacy. Drawing upon their imaginations and inspiration, the Studio will produce a slate of new and original animated films that are sure to delight audiences of all ages."

First set for the think tank is The LEGO Movie which is directed by Lord and Miller and releases on February 7, 2014. Also being developed are Storks (written and directed by Stoller) and Smallfoot, which is written by Requa and Ficarra from an idea by Sergio Pablos (Despicable Me), who will direct. Storks is set for 2015, Smallfoot for 2016.
