StudioCanal and Aardman Start Productions on Early Man
StudioCanal and Aardman Animations have announced the start of production on Nick Park’s newest stop frame feature, 4-time Oscar winner Early Man, with a charming short and snappy promotional video that features the movie’s prehistoric hero.
Directed by Nick Park, Early Man is from a script by Mark Burton (Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Shaun the Sheep: The Movie) and John O’Farrell. Voicing the lead character Dug is Eddie Redmayne. The film follows a plucky caveman named Dug and his sidekick Hognob who unites his tribe in a fight for survival against the Bronze Age.
StudioCanal and Aardman previously collaborated for the release of the hit Shaun the Sheep The Movie. Early Man is planned to be released on January 26, 2018 in UK cinemas, with a US release planned for March 30, 2018.
