David Bowers to Direct Paramount’s Rugrats Movie


Paramount recently announced that their live-action/CG hybrid adaptation of Nickelodeon’s classic toon Rugrats will have family film veteran David Bowers as director. Bowers’ impressive portfolio include the likes of Flushed Away and Astro Boy, as well as second, third, and fourth installments of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie franchise.

Production for the upcoming Rugrats film is already ongoing at the Paramount Players division. Co-creator Gabe Csupo is on hand as co-producer alongside Brian Robbins and Karen Rosenfelt. The script is by David A. Goodman (The Orville, Family Guy), president of the Writers Guild of America West. The studio has set a January 29, 2021 release date.

For the uninitiated (or those who have forgotten,) The Rugrats series followed the imaginative, comedic adventures of toddlers Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil, their friends and families (and occasionally, Reptar). The show ran for nine seasons starting in 1991, and inspired three fully animated movies between 1998 and 2003.
