Johnny Hart’s classic newspaper strip B.C., which follows the adventures of a prehistoric bunch of goofballs, is being developed as an animated feature.
The film, B.C. — Back to Civilization, is intended as an all-ages family film (a ‘four-quadrant’ title in industry talk). The finished film is being eyed for early 2021 release.
Redwood City, California-based Parallax Media Ventures is developing the film with John Hart Studios. Founded in 2015, Parallax is led by industry veteran Kevin Richardson, a former executive and senior producer at Nickelodeon, Electronic Arts, and Mattel Interactive, with other credits at Lucasfilm, Hyperion, Colossal, Wang Films Taiwan, MS Films Germany, Kingkey Animation China, and most recently Studio Climb Malaysia.
