CG-Animated Film 'Noah's Ark' Lands John Stevenson and Cameron Hood
Oscar nominee Stevenson will head up the creative on the film and Hood will co-direct.
John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda, Shrek) and Cameron Hood (Megamind, First Flight) have been tapped for the CG-animated musical feature Noah’s Ark, Unified Pictures announced Thursday.
Stevenson, a 2009 Academy Award nominee for animated feature Kung Fu Panda, will head up the creative on the film and executive produce while Hood will co-direct.
The film, written by Philip LaZebnik (The Prince of Egypt, Mulan and Pocahontas), tells the well-known biblical tale from the perspective on the animals aboard the boat.
The story follows a Meerkat named Gilbert, who is chosen to lead the ragtag group of animals to the ark.
The production will take place in Los Angeles through Unified’s in-house animation division.
Noah's Ark is not the only film in the works about the familiar tale. Darren Aronofsky's live-action epic Noah, starring Russell Crowe, hits theaters in March 2014.
Stevenson is repped by CAA. Hood is repped by Vox and Heitmann Entertainment.
