New stuff to come from Aardman
This is a story that has something for everyone at ComicMix. According to Variety, Aardman Feataures (creators of Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run, and currently part of Sony) has announced a bunch of new features.
Life on Mars fans will be psyched to hear that writers Matthew Graham and Aashley Pharoah are penning The Cat Burglars. Described by Variety as a film about "milk-thieving stray cats," it will be directed by Steve Box in the stop-motion sculpture style us hard-core animation buffs love.
Also, Peter Lord will direct a comedy based on the Pirate series by Gideon Defoe. Lord gave us Chicken Run, maybe the last time Mel Gibson was any fun.
Peter Banham is wowrking on Operation Rudolph, a Christmas movie. He’s one of the writers of Borat. We’re psyched.
