Sony Pictures Animation is teaming up with Robot Chicken producers/animators John Harvatine and Eric Towner for the stop motion animated project Superbago.
John Harvatine IV and Eric Towner are set to direct this tale centering on a pair of superhero wannabes. While Sony Pictures Animation is best known for family-friendly fare such as The Smurfs, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Hotel Transylvania, this project will cater to a different audience.
Here's what Michelle Raimo Kouyate, Sony Pictures Animation's production president, had to say about Superbago.
"Superbago is a unique new project for Sony Pictures Animation. I love that our studio has the luxury of not being tied down to one specific type of movie. Superbago will skew older than our last features but I immediately fell in love with the smart comedy idea behind it, which features two irreverent stop-motion characters dropped in a live-action world. The incredibly talented creative team of directors John Harvatine and Eric Towner, along with the unique perspective of producer Jared Hess, will make this project like nothing you've seen before."
No production schedule was given for Superbago. Jared Hess is currently working with writers Hubbel Palmer and Chris Bowman on Relativity's Untitled Heist Comedy, formerly known as Loomis Fargo, which stars Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig.
