The Little Prince

Monster Trucks keeps speeding further and further into the future. The live-action / CG film, originally slated to open in May of this year, has been delayed yet again, this time from 2016 all the way to 2017. Taking its old 2016 slot will be The Little Prince, an animated adaptation of the classic children’s book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

While they were at it, Paramount also set new dates for SpongeBob SquarePants 3 and Amusement Park. Get all the Paramount Animation release dates after the jump.  Read More »

Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol

Ethan Hunt will be embarking on his next adventure a bit earlier than expected. Paramount has bumped up Mission: Impossible 5 by five months to summer 2015. Meanwhile, Monster Trucks is being delayed by seven months so it can take Mission: Impossible 5‘s old Christmas 2015 berth.

The Lego Movie

For a while there, it looked like Hollywood might be learning a lesson about toy-based films. Yes, the Transformers franchise continues to rake in the dough, but Battleship was one of the floppiest flops of the year, and Universal scrapped their plans to make movies based on other Hasbro board games.

Then The Lego Movie hit theaters, dominating the box office and earning stellar reviews besides. Suddenly, a Monster Trucks movie looks like a good idea. Such a good idea, in fact, that it’s begun casting, with Suburgatory‘s Jane Levy and X-Men: First Class‘s Lucas Till eyed for the leads.

After the jump, find out more about that, as well as why Warner Bros. is considering making Ninjago before it gets around to The Lego Movie 2. Read More »

Moviegoing audiences love their cars, whether in alien robot form or as high-speed heist tools. Paramount learned that lesson with their lucrative Transformers series, and now they’re preparing to launch a whole other franchise called Monster Trucks.

Paramount Animation has tapped Blue Sky Studios’ Chris Wedge (Ice Age) to direct the original live-action / CG hybrid, which has a script by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger (Kung Fu Panda). Production is expected to get underway next year for a 2015 release. Hit the jump for all the details.
