Pixar’s 1906 Goes Dual Studio

Warner Bros. Pictures and Disney/Pixar are teaming for “1906,” the live-action feature directorial debut of Brad Bird (“Ratatouille,” “The Incredibles”) reports the trades.

The story centers on a college student who begins to investigate the murder of his father, uncovering a web of deceit that has left the city vulnerable to the sort of fire that breaks out when the Great Earthquake of 1906 hits San Francisco.

Bird is rewriting James Dalessandro’s script. Disney/Pixar will co-finance the movie.
