This is kind of a good news/bad news situation here; the good news being that, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Edgar Wright will co-write and direct an animated film at DreamWorks centered on the concept of shadows. Now, the bad: Me and My Shadow, another DreamWorks project helmed by Alessandro Carloni with a similar concept seems to be cancelled for good.
This will be Edgar Wright's first animated feature film, although one of his next projects, Unfortunately the Milk, will be a live-action/Animation hybrid. David Walliams (Little Britain) will co-write.
Here's what DreamWorks Animation’s co-presidents Bonnie Arnold and Mireille Soria had to say on this yet untitled film:
Edgar will spearhead a new approach to this fascinating concept and we’re ecstatic to have him on board as director along with David as co-writer. We’ve always been intrigued by a film concept involving shadows, and now with Edgar’s signature comedic style and abilities as a natural storyteller, audiences will be treated to a truly captivating and energetic tale.What are your thoughts on this news? Sad that Me and My Shadow will never see the light of day or excited for the new project?
