“Trolls” directors Walt Dohrn and Mike Mitchell have revealed that screenwriter Michael McCullers (“The Boss Baby,” “Baby Mama”) has been brought onboard to pen a fifth film in the “Shrek” series for DreamWorks Animation.
McCullers penned the second and third “Austin Powers” movies and Mitchell says the project is further along than you might think: “They’ve got a pretty good story. It’s being written by Michael McCullers who wrote all of the ‘Austin Powers’ films. He came up with a really great idea that they’re exploring. There’s more story to tell there and we’re ready to help tell it for sure.”
Though the two did not confirm they would direct the film, but did add they are developing a sequel to the 2005 superhero comedy “Sky High”.
