Netflix Plans To Acquire Waititi’s “Bubbles”

Netflix is closing a deal to acquire “Bubbles,” the stop motion animated film from Oscar nominated director Taika Waititi (“Thor: Ragnarok”) and Mark Gustafson (“Fantastic Mr. Fox”).

Isaac Adamson penned the script which topped the 2015 Black List and tells the offbeat story of iconic singer Michael Jackson from the perspective of his beloved chimp Bubbles.

The package deal is expected to come in at somewhere around $20 million following a heavy bidding war. Andrew Kortschak and Walter Kortshak will produce.
