Actor and comedian Danny McBride is partnering with Spire Animation Studios via his production company Rough House Pictures to develop an animated feature titled Trouble.
Trouble tells the story of 13-year-old Jax, who gets in trouble with his family and is swept into a parallel reality known as the World of Trouble. He embarks on an adventure, making new friends, reflecting on his character and learns the value of self-forgiveness, all while trying to figure out how to get out of trouble, and get back home.
McBride co-created the original story for Trouble with Spire’s CCO Brad Lewis (producer, Ratatouille, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World), pictured top left. Kevin Barnett and Chris Pappas (The Wrong Missy, The Do-Over) are writing the script. Spire’s P.J. Gunsagar, pictured top right, and Rough House Pictures’ Brandon James are executive producing. The film is currently in story and pre-production.
