When Computers Attack
Caffeinated Clint

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the CGI flick is a trend that’s not going away quickly. 20th Century Fox Studios Animation, Blue Sky Studios and director Chris Wedge – the trio behind the computer-animated hit "Ice Age" – are looking to add a heroic weasel to their menagerie of quirky 3-D characters. Fox Animation has optioned rights to "Wainscott Weasel," a children’s book penned by young-adult author Tor Seidler, illustrated by Fred Marcellino and published by HarperCollins. Blue Sky, the computer animation facility behind "Ice Age," would produce the 3-D animated project, with director Wedge expected to helm. Seidler is likely to serve as one of the screenwriters, though writers have not yet been lined up for the project. Before handling "Weasel," Wedge must first complete "Robots" (in production and slated for spring 2005) and "Ice Age 2."
