Elton John’s Rocket Pictures has hired “Kung-Fu Panda” director John Stevenson to helm “Sherlock Gnomes”, the sequel to 2010 CGI animated flick “Gnomeo & Juliet”.
Deadline says the Andry Riley and Kevin Cecil penned script has “the characters from the first movie enlisting the help of a famous gnome-detective in solving the sinister disappearance of gnomes from the suburban gardens of England.”
“John has the perfect sensibility for this movie, together with the vision to build on the first film to create a distinctive, fresh and action-packed adventure,” said Rocket CEO and producer Steve Hamilton Shaw.
Producer Elton John is going to be writing some original tunes for the movie, which begins production early next year.
