Imagi Reviving Dreamworks’ Tusker

Imagi International (“TMNT,” “Gatchaman”) is developing DreamWorks’ abandoned India-set elephant tale “Tusker” reports Variety.

The saga follows a young elephant’s journey of discovery, heroism and redemption, which intersects with and renews the life of a reclusive old elephant who has always been an outsider.

Ted Tally (“Silence of the Lambs”) penned the screenplay and both a director and cast will be announced in coming weeks. An early 2011 release is planned.
