goreverbinski.jpg…and hopefully it won’t contain a 50-foot woman who morphs into a thousand crabs.

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.
