Kudos Pictures and Natural Light Films is teaming with Walt Disney Pictures to start production on the wildlife feature, Dreamscape.
The film will shoot for 50 weeks and showcases the life cycle of flamingos in one of the world's last and most hostile wilderness areas, Lake Natron in Northern Tanzania. Variety reports it charts the journey of the flamingo from 'ugly duckling' chick to magnificent, crimson-winged "firebird" whose mysterious migrations coincide with life-bringing rain.
Matthew Aeberhard, who founded Natural Light Films in 2001, is directing with Leander Ward. Aeberhard said he wants the film "to target a younger, hipper audience than wildlife films generally attract, and provoke a more visceral reaction."
Dreamscape will hit theaters in early 2008.
