The screen rights to Chris Gall's forthcoming childrens book Dinotrux have been optioned by DreamWorks Animation. The studio that brought us the Shrek and Madagascar franchises wants to turn Gall's Dinotrux into a computer generated family film.
To be published by Little, Brown next month, Dinotrux is set in a prehistoric world where the ruling creatures are part-truck, part-dinosaur. Creatures like the Tyrannosaurus Trux, Craneosaurus and Garbageadon motor their way across the land, scooping and digging up the landscape in their way.
Variety reports that DreamWorks Animation paid mid-six figures for the film rights to Gall's 32-page book.- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)
