Update: Brad Bird's 1906

/Film Reader PixarSpy sent over an interesting update on Brad Bird's live action feature debut adaptation of James Dalessandro's 1906. As you may already know, the film follows a young man who discovers a series of secrets and lies that left San Francisco highly vulnerable to the fires that engulfed the city in the aftermath of the historical 1906 earthquake.

My spy tells me that Pixar is busy building scale models and rumor has it they are re-creating San Francisco in computer imaging, based on original photos taken from 1906. I'm hearing that it will look extremely authentic. Right now the studio is unofficially aiming for a Winter 2009 release.
