Cirrina Studios has announced that William Joyce (“Epic,” “Meet the Robinsons”) will direct its animated film adaptation of Veronica Cossanteli’s popular young adult novel “The Extincts”.
“Shrek 2” producer David Lipman adapted the script which follows the madcap adventures of George Drake, a boy who goes to work on a farm hidden deep in the woods where he discovers a hidden cache of extinct and mythological creatures, one of which escapes and terrorises the town in which he lives.
Pre-production starts in June, with an eye towards a 2019 release. The project will be produced by Michael Siegel and handled out of Dwarf Animation Studio in Montpellier, France.
