Elton John’s Movie Company Making New Animated Family Film
Elton John’s animation studio, Rocket Pictures, is set to produce a new live-action / CG animated family movie. According to Dateline.com, Rockect Pictures has required the rights to Will Gallows and the Snake Bellied Troll, series of books by Derek Keilty, and are already looking for talent. The story is about a young cowboy seeing justice in a fantasy/Wild West setting. Gnomeo & Juliet writer/director Kelly Asbury has already signed on to direct. Steve Hamilton Shaw and David Furnish will produce with Elton John himself as executive producer.
It’s a classic cowboy story for kids, set in an amazing world. We think family audiences will love it. – Elton John
I can guess that John will compose and perform the score and soundtrack himself.
