Dreamworks Planning CG Animated “Dinotrux”

DreamWorks Animation has optioned rights to the illustrated children’s book “Dinotrux”reports Variety.

Written by Chris Gall, the 32-page book takes place in a fictional prehistoric age, when the world was ruled by Dinotrux, creatures that were part trucks, part dinosaurs, with species like the Craneosauraus, Garbageadon and Tyrannosaurus Trux plowing and bulldozing their way across the terrain.

Dreamworks will turn the property into a CG-animated film with talking creatures.
