The Beatles have other suitors.
Harry Potter Producer David Heyman: I’ve got the rights to this book called The Curious Instance of the Dog and the Night Time, which I’m gonna do with [Steve] Kloves (screenwriter of Harry Potter). I just closed the deal on some Beatles songs, and we’re gonna do an animated film, a musical animated film using Beatles songs, with a love story between a dung beetle and a lady bug. ...
Dung beetle? I was hoping for a potato bug.
You will note that live-action producers -- even ones with billion dollar franchises -- are moving into the animation biz. This begins to look like a trend.
