Zemeckis' ImageMovers banner will produce with the Gotham Group. Pic is being developed as an R-rated live-action/CG-hybrid budgeted in the $20 million-$30 million range.
Zemeckis has not committed to direct. He's weighing several options in the wake of "Mars Needs Moms" bombing at the box office and Disney's decision to pull the plug on his planned "Yellow Submarine" remake.
We enjoyed representing the artists who toiled and achieved at ImageMover's Digital. And we get the unyielding march of technology. Like them or not, the films of ImageMover's Digital pushed the technological envelope. IMD was, in our view, a progressive animation studio making "cutting-edge technology" films.
We hope to see Robert and the Imagemover moniker at SPA. We look forward to representing artists bring more of his brand of entertainment to a theater near you.
