Aardman Announces New Slate!

by | June 19, 2007 | Comments

Only a few months after severing ties with DreamWorks Animation, the mad geniuses at Aardman hooked up with Sony’s animation division. And now they’re announcing their next movies.

Fans of "Chicken Run," "Flushed Away" and "Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" will be pleased to hear about Aardman’s newest flicks:

"The Cat Burglars" — Described as "Wallace & Gromit" meets "Ocean’s 11" AND as "family-friendly Tarantino," this one will be about, you guessed it, a team of feline felons. (And clay-mated, not CG animated.)

"Pirates" — Aardman co-founder Peter Lord will helm this action comedy about … pirates! (Based on the series of stories by Gideon Defoe.)

"Operation Rudolph" — From one of the "Borat" screenwriters … I’ll let Variety describe this one: "The Christmas movie shows the North Pole operation as an exhilarating ultra-high-tech military procedure on a massive scale, revealing how Santa and his huge army of combat elves get around the whole world in one night." Sounds cool.

Alas, Aardman presently has no plans to deliver a "W & G" sequel. These new ones sound pretty cool though.
