DreamWorks Animation has picked up rights to Dinotrux, and plans to develop the illustrated children's book into a CG-animated film.

According to Variety, the 32-page book was written by Chris Gall, and takes place in a fictional prehistoric age, when the world was ruled by Dinotrux, creatures that were part trucks, part dinosaurs, with species like the Craneosauraus, Garbageadon and Tyrannosaurus Trux plowing and bulldozing their way across the terrain.

The title characters will be talking creatures.

Gall is a commercial illustrator who has written three other books. Dinotrux will be published in April by Little, Brown.

No production date has been set.
