Genndy Tartakovsky Tapped to direct Sony’s 3D Popeye Movie


Genndy Tartakovsky Tapped to direct Sony's 3D Popeye Movie
Hotel Transylvania may only be the tip of the ice berg for director Genndy Tartakovsky, according to Variety. The animation veteran, whose past credits include Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, and Clone Wars, will be developing and directing Sony’s upcoming 3D Popeye movie next.

Sony’s 3D take on the Popeye movie franchise will be co-produced by Avi and Ari Arad, with David Ronn and Jay Scherick pegged as writers. The project will be overseen by Sony production president michelle Raimo-Kouyate and production senior VP Michael Lachance.

While Popeye was a staple of comic strips, TV, and merchandise since its creation in 1929, the franchise has only had one big screen outing to date, namely the 1980s live action feature starring Robin Williams in the role of Popeye.

There are no release dates set for Sony’s 3D Popeye movie yet, and you’ll be hard pressed to get Tartakovsky to promote it in advance, since he’d probably want people to focus on Hotel Transylvania, which opens on September 21.
