TOAD TRIP Hops to Life

Written by Tara the Mom    Wednesday, 09 June 2010 06:23   

The special effects house Rhythm and Hues that won an Oscar for The Golden Compass is changing gears by not just working as work-for-hire but to produce their own films (like Laika which made Coraline). The intended first film is family comedy Toad Trip, kind of like Marmaduke but with a talking toad in a live-action environment.

Rhythm and Hues is also working on Tales from the Farm based on the novel of the same name about a boy who goes to live on his uncle's farm following the death of his mother and starts dressing like a superhero.  Their third film is a Titanic-type epic about love during a natural disaster.
