FilmNation has boarded its first animated feature: A science fiction re-imagining of Chaplin Chaplin’s 1921 film “The Kid” to be directed by Christian Volckman (“Renaissance”) and Rupert Wyatt (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”).

French animation outfit Superprod, Luxembourg’s Bidibul and U.S. banner Big Beach, the New-York based company behind “Little Miss Sunshine,” have joined forces to produce the yet-to-be-titled animated feature inspired by the characters and themes in “The Kid.”

Boris Starling, a journalist and best-selling author who created the BBC1 primetime series “Messiah,” is writing the script with Volckman and Wyatt.

Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf are producing for Big Beach banner alongside Superprod’s Clément Calvet and Jérémie Fajner, the producer pair behind Tomm Moore’s Oscar-nominated “Song of the Sea,” and Bidibul’s Lilian Eche and Christel Henon. The feature is being developed with the support of Chaplin’s family and the rights holders of “The Kid. »
