According to The Hollywood Reporter, John H. Williams has found his next project in Phreex, an animated feature revolving around a group of rejected lab animals. The project is based on a script by Matt Corman and Chris Ord and is being taken out to potential partners in the coming weeks.

Williams is producing Phreex with Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, who have worked with the Shrek 2 and Shrek producer in a writing capacity on several projects, including The Tuxedo and the upcoming Valiant, which the Walt Disney Co. will release in August. The duo is making their producing debut with Phreex and played an integral role in bringing Corman and Ord together with Williams.
