Hey did it just pass me by that the Dreamworks animated film of Truckers now has a director and a new writer?
I'd actually forgotten about the entirely really, it's not out till 2013.
says Anand Tucker is directing from a script by John Orloff. Interesting has he mainly does romantic comedies and dramas.
Last I heard it was Slumdog's Simon Beaufoy writing
weirdly he wrote Tucker's last film, Leap Year
Also it's produced by Andrew Adamson, director of the first two Shreks and the first two Narnias. He was set to direct at one point, Here's the article from 2001 when they got the rights: http://www.writenews.com/2001/050201_dreamworks_bromeliad.htm
This is the only thread where it has (briefly) gotten mentioned
No actual sign of it on the Dreamworks website though. may come back to it again sometime.
Here's a link to their release schedule up till 2014
and it's not mentioned....I may have started a pointless thread, still something may come of it
