Tartakovsky says he got an idea for a third “Hotel Transylvania” film that “made it irresistible to return” and direct again.
“Get Smurfy” is the title of Sony’s first all-CGI Smurfs film, and features a separate cast from its live-action predecessors.
“Brave” co-director Brenda Chapman is organizing an auction to help artist and friend Sue Nichols.
Director Kelly Asbury says the story “was not fully in the place we wanted it to be yet.”
The all-CG “Smurfs” reboot won’t be released until 2016, but you wouldn’t know that from the aggressive manner in which Sony Pictures Animation is promoting the film.
Sony announced today that their all-CGI “Smurfs” pic, directed by animation veteran Kelly Asbury (“Shrek 2,” “Gnomeo & Juliet”), will be pushed back from its original 2015 release date to 2016.
Besides today’s bonanza of Genndy Tartakovsky projects, Sony Pictures Animation also made it official that Kelly Asbury (“Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron,” “Shrek 2,” “Gnomeo & Juliet”) will direct the upcoming, as-yet-untitled “Smurfs” movie.
