Latest movie reports have claimed that Michael Dougherty, the screenwriter of superhero flick "Superman Returns", will be teaming up with Walt Disney Pictures and Robert Zemeckis' ImageMovers to develop an animation film "Calling All Robots". Variety reported that Dougherty has been set to pen and direct the film.
In developing the feature film's script, the writer of "X-Men 2" will be joined by Breehn Burns and Simeon Wilkins. Further, it was said that he also plans to helm the film using the same motion-capture-technology techniques used to make Angelina Jolie's "Beowulf". On the using of the technology, Dougherty explained that the movement digital recording technology is needed to "tell a story that's a throwback to old Godzilla movies".
Set to be produced by Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke and Steve Starkey, the sci-fi animation adventure movie is set for 2010 release. Aside from the using of the motion capture techniques, other details concerning the project still remain under tight wraps.
