Wed Wabbit, written by Lissa Evans
Wed Wabbit, written by Lissa Evans, follows a ten-year-old girl, Fidge, who lives with her dippy mother and four-year-old sister Minnie and is obsessed her furry red toy rabbit and a book about multi-colored creatures known as Wimbley Woos.
The film is being eyed as a hybrid live-action and animation. It is the latest Evans’ book to be developed as a feature film after her book Their Finest Hour and a Half, about a group of Soho-based advertising execs during WWII, was turned into BBC Films’ Their Finest' starring Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy.
The film may be produced in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Film after the U.S. studio struck a deal with the UK firm last year. If so, it would be Locksmith’s second animated feature under the multi-picture deal with Fox after the two set up Ron’s Gone Wrong with co-directors Alessandro Carloni (Kung Fu Panda 3) and Pixar Story vet J.P. Vine (Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur). Locksmith and Fox are expected to release one animated film every year / 18 months with the UK based studio developing and producing projects with Double Negative providing digital production and Fox releasing.
