Zobel Goes On Stop-Motion “Safari”

Craig Zobel (“Great World of Sound”) and Matt Chapman will pen the stop-motion animated feature “Monster Safari” for the Jim Henson co. says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on a short film by effects company Screen Novelties, the “Safari” story revolves around what happens when the Earth’s monsters come out of hiding and a pair of bumbling crypto-zoologists spring into action to save them from a ruthless big-game hunter.

Screen’s Mark Caballero, Chris Finnegan and Seamus Walsh will help create the feature.
