Next Thing You Know, Cats and Dogs Are Investigating the Supernatural Together!

Dark Horse comic Beasts of Burden is heading to the big-screen with Shrek and Chronicles of Narnia director Andrew Adamson leading the charge, reports Heat Vision.

Adamson is producing what is intended to be a CG-animated feature adaptation with his Strange Weather Films partner Aron Warner along with Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.

‘Burden’ is set in a community called Burden Hill where a series of supernatural events occur, causing a gang of dogs (and one cat) to team up in order to keep their owners and the town’s residents safe.

Evan Dorkin (“Milk & Cheese”) and Jill Thompson (“Scary Godmother”) created the characters, which first appeared in “The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings, Witchcraft, the Dead and Monsters,” and earned the duo Eisner Awards for best short story and best painter.

Dark Horse is teeing up RIPD, to star Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, at Universal, where it is also developing big-screen adaptations of Emily the Strange and Umbrella Academy.
