Verbinski’s Next Project Animated…

Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is a man who knows no genre bounds. He’s directed a horror film (The Ring), a dramedy (The Weather Man), an action-comedy (an actedy? comection?) in the guise of The Mexican, and one of the highest grossing action-adventure trilogies of all-time (Pirates) to varying degrees of success. And now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, this eclectic director’s next project will be animated.

The untitled, unscripted, relatively undeveloped film (being fully developed by Verbinski’s Blind Wink Productions) has landed heavyweight producer Graham King (The Departed) in its corner and has approached writer John Logan (Sweeney Todd, The Aviator) to do the screenplay.

So although lots of producers are in place, we really haven’t heard much of anything about this project in development. There’s not even a clue here to tell us what the film could even be about. Also, in a world where Gore Verbinski can create anything using his special effects team (and virtually has, effortlessly), why make an animated film?

Stay tuned to FSR for more information regarding this project.

He's been a cubicle monkey for the last few years, a veteran stage actor of over 10 years, a sometimes commercial actor, occasional writer of articles, a once-legend in the realm of podcastery, purveyor of chuckles in his homecity of Chicago as he has trained with the world renown iO (Improv Olympic) and Second City Conservatory and performed with both theaters, and can be seen doing a thing that actor's do on the website of his online sitcom, Josh also likes to tackle the beef of his bio with one run-on sentence, because it befits his train-of-thought.
