“Before I Fall” producer Jon Shestack and artist Lisa Frank are teaming for a live-action/animation hybrid feature based on Frank’s psychedelic artwork used on school supplies.
Frank’s fluorescent tableaus of things like unicorns, dolphins, rainbows, puppies and bunnies have been a staple of back-to-school shopping and have been emblazoned across backpacks, binders, pencil cases, trapper keepers and stickers since the 1990s.
In the announcement, Frank says: “I have always wanted to do a feature film that brings the world of Lisa Frank to life. We have so much backstory on our characters and they have been alive in my imagination since the beginning.”
No director or writer is yet attached.
