Panda Director Tackles Animated “Noah’s Ark”

John Stevenson (“Kung Fu Panda”) has been hired to direct the CG animated feature “Noah’s Ark” for Unified Pictures.

Philip LaZebnik (“The Prince Of Egypt,” “Mulan”) pens the script which tells the Biblical tale from the point of view of the animals. In particular it focuses on an outcast aardvark who becomes the reluctant leader of a ragtag group of misfit animals that need to be led to the mighty ark before the impending flood.

Along their journey, they band together to conquer unforeseen obstacles, and the aardvark discovers inner strength and ingenuity within him.

Cecil Kramer and Stevenson will executive produce the project which is in pre-production ahead of a 2016 release.
