Jumping the Divide

Mr. Kaytis moves to the live-action side of the table:

Amblin Partners has acquired Deb Lucke’s YA novel The Lunch Witch, with Angry Birds co-director Clay Kaytis attached to make his live-action directing debut. ...

Kaytis comes out of Disney where he worked as an animator on such films as Frozen, Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph before Rovio hired him to helm the feature animation adaptation of its touchstone franchise. Angry Birds grossed $346 million worldwide for Sony. ...

Congratulations to Clay for having the talent (and stamina) to go where Frank Tashlin, Brad Bird, Rob Minkoff and several other animation artists have earlier ventured.

(Mr. Kaytis also conducted a series of animation podcast in the not-so-long-ago. Find them here).

We love you back, Singh. Even though you sound dishearteningly generic. And advertising something. Oh well ...
