Dis bows to live-action 'Gods'

13 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Walt Disney Studios is brushing up on its Greek mythology. The studio, which explored the world of the gods in its 1997 animated feature Hercules, has just dropped mid-six figures to pick up King of the Gods, an original concept from writer Sid Quashie, who will now write the script. The pitch was sold to the company through producers Gordon Gray and Mark Ciardi's Mayhem Pictures. Independent producer AJ Marcantonio, who conceived the idea with Quashie, also is set to produce. Gods is an epic fantasy that explores how the young god Zeus discovered that his destiny was to overthrow his father, the evil Titan Cronus, and become ruler of the world. The story is based on the original Greek myth as told by Hesiod. It is being developed as an live-action adventure that could have franchise potential in the vein of The Lord of the Rings. »

Disney will shutter Paris ani unit

9 July 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

PARIS -- Walt Disney Feature Animation will close its production studio in the Parisian suburb of Montreuil-sous-Bois and lay off all of its 89 workers there, a Disney spokesperson said Tuesday in London. The spokesperson maintained that there is no set date for the studio's closure, but French news sources reported that it may happen as early as September. Disney said it had sought to sell the unit for 18 months as part of company efforts to centralize animation production but had no viable offers. The studio was involved in production work on such films as The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan and Hercules. The announcement was initially made to employees at a workers' council meeting June 20, but the news was not immediately made public. »
