DQ Entertainment Greenlights New $45M Jungle Book Movie

India’s DQ Entertainment has recently launched a dedicated feature division tasked with producing a steady slate of motion pictures within the next few years, using iconic and universally loved characters and stories as the basis. The first approved movie from said division is a $45 million 3D animated movie based on the Rudyard Kipling classic The Jungle Book.

DQ’s 3D take on The Jungle Book is already in pre-production stage, and has already hired screenwriter Billy Frolick (of Madagascar) and co-directors Jun Falkenstein (The Tigger Movie, The Smurfs, Despicable Me) and Kevin Johnson (Alvin and the Chipmunks, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone), along with production designer James Hegedus (Shrek) to start work on the film.

The Jungle Book is targeting a 2014 release date, and will be trying to meet the schedule by splitting pre/pos-production and animation work between Los Angeles and DQE’s headquarters in Hyderabad, India. Aside from The Jungle Book, there are also two unnamed classic titles already in queue for DQ’s next two theatrical filmprojects.
