DreamWorks Greenlights The Croods Sequel


DreamWorks Greenlights The Croods Sequel

According to The Hollywood Reporter, DreamWorks Animation has just approved a sequel to the 2013 Prehistoric CG comedy The Croods. The original co-writers and co-directors Chris Sanders and Kirk De Micco will be returning to the project, and the studio is already in talks with the original voice cast (which includes Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Nicolas Cage, etc.).

The news of the sequel being greenlit is not surprising even if it came too soon, since The Croods was the movie that pulled the studio out of a rut caused by a poor box office performance and loss of investor confidence. The Croods managed to open with an impressive $144 domestic cume on March 22, followed by a $242 million cume in international territories. The movie was originally intended to be a CG-animated project for former DreamWorks partner Aardman Animation, with a script co-written by Monty Python veteran John Cleese.
