Genndy Tartakovsky returning for Hotel Transylvania 3

27 June 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last October, director Genndy Tartakovsky revealed that he had no plans to return for Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 3, stating that “two is enough” and he was looking to move on to other projects, including the revived Samurai Jack, which is set to return to Cartoon Network this year.

Well, it seems he has now had a change of heart, as the director has told The Hollywood Reporter that he’ll be reuniting with voice actors Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez and Andy Samberg for the third entry in the animated franchise.

I thought I was done exploring the world of Hotel Transylvania after the first two films but while I was away from the franchise finishing my TV show Samurai Jack, an idea sparked that I got really excited about and made it irresistible to return and helm myself this third adventure..”

The first two Hotel Transylvania movies grossed over $820 million between them, »

Sony Pushes Animation Slate With Hotel Transylvania 3 Update

21 June 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony Animation is pulling out all the stops to boost its output for 2017 and 2018, and the result is some fairly wide-ranging news regarding both the television and film side of the operation. With its animated Spider-Man feature already moving full-speed ahead – with Phil Lord and Chris Miller on board – and television series of both Ghostbusters and Cloudy With a Chance Of Meatballs in development, the biggest titles currently under discussion are Hotel Transylvania 3, that film’s overall franchise, and EmojiMovie: Express Yourself.

The Hotel Transylvania franchise

Recently, Sony announced that the director of the first two instalments of the highly successful franchise – Genndy Tartakovsky – had opted not to return for the third movie. This was widely acknowledged to be the result of his return to the Samurai Jack fold, since he was that show’s creator, and he just headed up a brand new season. However, having performed a rather nifty about-face, »

New Ghostbusters Animated TV Show Is Coming in 2018

20 June 2016 6:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Depending on your perspective, it is either a very good or a very bad time to be a Ghostbusters fan. The all-female reboot which is directed by Paul Feig is dropping next month and, despite your feelings about that specifically, it does mean there is a lot of other Ghostbusters goodness on the way. To that point, today, Sony Animation confirmed that they have a new animated series based on the movie coming in 2018.

Sony announced in a press release today that they are creating a new Ghostbusters animated series that takes place in the future. The show, which will be called Ghostbusters: Ecto Force, is an extension of what Sony has planned on the film side of things, which Sony has officially dubbed the "Ghostbusters Cinematic Universe." Here is how Sony described the new series in their press release.

'Spider-Man' and 'Ghostbusters' loom large in the plans of Sony Pictures Animation

20 June 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sony Pictures Animation has always been the red-headed stepchild of studio animation arms. They’ve had a few big hits, a few mid-sized hits, and they’ve done a very good job of squeezing every possible penny out of the direct-to-video market with sequels to some of their titles. In the press release they sent out today, Sony made it clear that they’re doubling down on animation. Kristine Belson is the president of Sony Animation, answering directly to Tom Rothman, and she talked about letting artists drive the films they’re planning to make. It’s a pretty safe list overall, with an emphasis on pre-existing properties, and I have a hard time getting my head around how anyone is even remotely artistically moved by the idea of an Emoji movie. Some of the titles had already been announced, but there are new details on those, and some of the announcements were brand-new. »

A rebooted version of “Ghostbusters” doesn’t hit theaters until next month, but Sony Pictures is already plunging ahead with other ways to keep the paranormal investigators busy.
