Edwards Pens “Amulet,” “Animated American”

“The Princess and the Frog” scribe Rob Edwards has been brought aboard to pen two high-profile features – “Amulet” for Warner Bros. Pictures and “Animated American” for Disney Pictures reports Variety.

Based on Kazu Kibuishi’s comic, “Amulet” follows a teenage brother and sister who are pulled into a mystical world of monsters where they learn they’re the last in a line of gatekeepers who must control a powerful amulet to save the world.

Will Smith and his son Jaden had been loosely attached to star, but that’s uncertain right now. Smith and James Lassiter are set to produce through their Overbrook Entertainment label.

Robert Zemeckis is producing “Animated American” which revolves around an animated baby raised by a live-action family until his 18th birthday. He then sets out to find his real family with the help of his friend and her jealous boyfriend.
