Dreamworks Animation will not make Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders’ sequel to the 2013 hit The Croods. The film had been in development for the last three-and-a-half years. The news was first reported by Variety on Friday evening.
The decision was reportedly delivered to Dreamworks employees on Thursday, the same day that Cartoon Brew reported Dreamworks could be ceasing operations at its 300-person studio in India.
The 30 or so employees who had been working on the film will be reassigned to other projects or placed into educational/training programs at the studio, an unnamed Universal source told Variety.
