Brad Bird has revealed that his next film will be live action.
The Academy Award winning director of The Incredibles and The Iron Giant has plans to make a live-action feature film.
Our sources say it could be the long rumored 1906. Based on the novel by James Dalessandro, which is a fictionalized account of the famous 1906 Earthquake in San Francisco. I can’t wait to see what Bird can do with this. I’m sure his animation background will help with the extensive computer generated effects sequences which will probably be required.
At one point Barry Levinson was in line to direct this. Warner Bros owns the rights.
He will start work on the live action project after he completes Pixar’s next Ratatouille, which is due out June 29th 2007.
