Jason Reitman To Pen And Direct “Beekle”

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Jason Reitman (“Juno,” “Young Adult”) is set to pen and direct an adaptation of Dan Santat’s award-winning children’s book “The Adventures Of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend” for DreamWorks Animation.

Beekle follows an odd imaginary friend whom no kid could possibly imagine, so he sets off on an unimaginable journey to the land of people in search of a best friend.

This marks the first project to be put into development by Dreamworks’ recently appointed Co-Presidents of Feature Animation Bonnie Arnold and Mireille Soria. It’s also Reitman’s first animated feature.
