Fox Animation has picked up the rights to the Roald Dahl classic, Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Variety notes the studio spin-off will turn the film into several forms of animation, primarily stop-motion. Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach adapted the book; Anderson will direct and produce with Scott Rudin. It tells the story of a fox who uses its wits and cunning to outfox three dimwitted farmers who tire of sharing their chickens with the fox and resort to a shock-and-awe offensive.
No production details have been set yet for Fantastic Mr. Fox.
