Sony Pictures Animation has recently announced plans for a new stop-motion/live-action feature titled Superbago. The project will be directed by John Harvatine and Eric Towner (Robot Chicken), produced by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, and Eric Robinson. The script is also being written by Hess, Ricky Blitt, Hubbel Palmer and Chris Bowman.
“Superbago is a unique new project for Sony Pictures Animation,” says president of production Michelle Raimo Kouyate. “I love that our studio has the luxury of not being tied down to one specific type of movie. Superbago will skew older than our last features, but I immediately fell in love with the smart comedy idea behind it, which features two irreverent stop-motion characters dropping in a live-action world. The incredibly talented creative team of directors John Harvatine and Eric Towner along with the unique perspective of producer Jared Hess will make this project like nothing you’ve seen before.”
