Lara Breay, of DWA’s Megamind (2005), will produce the film.
In March, DWA hurried the project along by hiring Megamind writers Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons, to script the tale, which will focus on penguins Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico’s paramilitary stories. The four are supporting characters of the Madagascar movies, but often have stolen the show.
Decisions on casting remain far away.
Shrek then directed Shrek 4-D, an animated attraction that’s part of the Universal Studios theme park.
