Sony Pictures Animation Announces Medusa
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.05.2014



Coming Soon reports that Sony Pictures Animation has announced that it acquired a pitch from Todd Alcott and Holly Golden for an animated comedy called Medusa, which will focus on the snake-haired woman from Greek mythology. Lauren Faust, who created My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic in 2010, will direct. Sony Pictures Animation president of production Michelle Raimo Kouyate will supervise with Jenny Marchick and Daniel Inkeles.

Kouyate said: "After hearing the ingeniously funny pitch from Todd and Holly, we could immediately see the enormous potential in the idea. And when Lauren Faust, a uniquely gifted animation filmmaker with a real talent for relating to audiences, connected with the project, we knew the combination of her vision and their story would create something extraordinary. 'Medusa' will be a clever, heartfelt animated comedy about a girl who's having the ultimate bad hair day."

Faust added: "Todd and Holly's version of the tale of Medusa is filled with so many of my favorite ideas to work with: magic, mythology, humor and strong, funny, extremely relatable characters. I was excited by the idea of showing the comedy behind an otherwise horrific monster, and I was really drawn to the writer's unique re-imagining of Greek mythology. In our story, we meet Medusa as a young human, who, like so many of us, is overwhelmed with trying to fit a certain mold to please others. Her resulting popularity ticks off the wrong Goddess who turns her into the snake-haired monster we all know and fear. Medusa sets out on a quest to reverse this curse with the help of a goofy team of oddball and misfit mythological creatures who help her learn that what makes you different is, in fact, what makes you strong."

Alcott co-wrote Antz and recently worked on The Weinstein Company's The Giver (starring Jeff Bridges and directed by Phillip Noyce).
