Sony Pictures Animation confirmed yesterday they are producing a new stop motion/live action hybrid feature project named SUPERBAGO.
SUPERBAGO will be directed by ROBOT CHICKEN's John Harvatine and Eric Towner and produced by NAPOLEON DYNAMITE helmer Jared Hess along with Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson.The film is being written by Ricky Blitt; Jared Hess, Hubbel Palmer, and Chris Bowman.
Michelle Raimo Kouyate, president of production at Sony Pictures Animation, commented:
"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."
