Antonio Banderas recently let the cat-out-of-the-bag â€“ if youâ€™ll excuse the pun â€“ revealing the long-gestating â€œPuss in Bootsâ€ flick will indeed be an origin story. And by that, we assumed there wouldn’t be any place for the feline’s old buddies, Shrek, Princess Fiona or Donkey?
â€œNo, all new characters – except Pussâ€, explains scribe David H.Steinberg. â€˜â€™It doesnâ€™t overlap with Shrek at all. Partly that was done to tell an original Puss story, but partly because we didnâ€™t know what Shrek 4 (and now Shrek 5) were going to do with the characters and we couldnâ€™t write conflicting storylines.â€™â€™
The hold up on the flick was due to the fact that â€œDreamWorks Animation only releases two pictures a year, so it had to get on the scheduleâ€, explains the scribe. â€˜â€™The release date is now set for 2012â€™â€™.
Steinberg has also been working on another family film, “Other People’s Wishes”, originally set to star Dwayne Johnson.
â€œLast I heard, Village Roadshow was very hot to put it into production but I donâ€™t know if the Rock version is going forward or not.â€
The film, which Steinberg was 1 of 5 writers on, â€œis about a guy who takes pennies from a wishing well and then the (other peopleâ€™s) wishes start happening to himâ€.
