Aniventure, the London based animation production studio, has unveiled its first slate of titles. The company has also signed a representation deal with CAA, which it says will help to identify and develop global partners so it can expand further into the family market.
On the slate are three feature projects:
Riverdance: An Animated Adventure (produced by Aniventure and River Productions) based on the stage show phenomenon of the same name and featuring Bill Whelan’s multi-platinum Grammy Award-winning music, currently in post-production.
Blazing Samurai (Aniventure and Blazing Productions), based on Mel Brooks’ classic Blazing Saddles and directed by Mark Koetsier (The Grinch) and overseen and produced by Rob Minkoff (The Lion King).
Hitpig (Aniventure), from Pulitzer Prize-winner Berkeley Breathed who is serving as executive producer and production designer on the film directed by Cinzia Angelini (Minions) and Maurizio Parimbelli (Peter Rabbit).
Riverdance, Blazing Samurai and Hitpig will be delivered in 2020, 2021 and 2022, respectively.
