The Weinsteins' Gotham Group has recently teamed up with the Chungcheongnam-do government of South Korea. According to The Hollywood Reporter, they will produce and distribute animated feature films together.
The movies will be based on Gotham's clientele roster of more than three hundred and fifty directors, writers and illustrators. They will produce CGI animated feature films. They are planning six to ten of these projects, which will be readied for theatrical distribution in the next year.
Chief manager of the Media Center of Chungcheongnam-do Hee Sup Kim stated, "Korea and its animation production companies have been at the center of the television animation business for years but have outsourced jobs only to this point. Now we want to extend further to the animated theatrical film business by being co-producer with prominent partners in the U.S."
