The first order of business appears to be hiring a second set of writers to work with "Shrek 2" scribes David Stem, Joe Stillman and David N. Weiss in order to push the franchise into trilogy territory.

"Shrek 3" is not the only animated sequel project getting a push at DreamWorks. The studio is also at work on "Shark Tale 2," even though the first film won't bow until October.
