Chicken Run 2

It’s been 18 years since Aardman Animation delivered the stop-motion prison escape comedy Chicken Run. The film from 2000 focused on a group of chickens who hatch a plan to bust out of their coop when they learn what deadly plans an evil farm owner has for them. To this day, Chicken Run is still the highest grossing stop-motion animated movie of all time, and now is apparently the time to make a sequel happen.

Chicken Run 2 is in the works at Aardman Animation, who is developing the film with StudioCanal and Pathe. But will Mel Gibson be back to voice the lead chicken Rocky? Read More »

Animation studio Illumination Entertainment had a huge hit with 2016’s The Secret Life of Pets, so a sequel was inevitable.

Goosebumps Haunted Halloween

A sequel to the 2015 adaptation of R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps book series has been in the works for a few years now.
