The Future of Atomic Robo
Brian Clevinger has shared a list of working titles for upcoming Atomic Robo mini-series. If that's not enough to get you going, he also gives some teases about genres, plots, and settings, but you'll have to click through to see those. Here are the titles:
Atomic Robo and Other Strangeness
Atomic Robo and the Ghost of Station X
Atomic Robo in Diamonds Are For Never
Atomic Robo and the Flying She-Devils of the Pacific
Atomic Robo: Under an Iron Sky
Puss n' Boots and Other Dreamworks Animation Plans
While I dread the thought of another Shrek film, I'd eagerly go see one that was just about a swashbuckling cat. Looks like I could get my wish.
Dreamworks is also planning a dragon movie, a superhero spoof (starring Robert Downey Jr.), yet another movie about re-imagined fairy tales, and sequels to Kung Fu Panda and Madagascar (again). I'm up for another round of Kung Fu Panda if it's as fun as the first one, but I don't think we can really be sure that that'll be the case. Of those five, I'm most interested in the superhero one in which Downey plays a supervillain who's forced by his own evil schemes to become a good guy.
There's also a chance that they'll be working on a Chris Sanders movie about a caveman. All they had to say was "Chris Sanders" and that's the most exciting project they've got.
Edited to add: Someone was nice enough to point out in the comments that the dragon movie is also directed by Sanders. I saw "dragon movie" in the article and immediately went to the next paragraph. Needless to say, it just shot up to the top of the list for me.
Now I should check to make sure Brad Bird's not attached to Madagascar 3 or something.
The Great Bear
You know what sounds as awesome as any of Dreamworks' plans? A Danish cartoon about a young boy, a missing sister, a vast and ancient forest, mythical animals, and a giant, tree-covered bear.
