Animated ‘Beasts Of Burden’ Nabs ‘9’ Director

Oscar-nominated Shane Acker (9; pictured) will direct Reel FX’s currently untitled CG animation, based on the Dark Horse Comics series by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson, Deadline reports.

Darren Lemke (Turbo, Shrek Forever After) is adapting the “Beasts Of Burden” project, about a team of fearless four-legged “Watch Dogs” who investigate parananormal activities in the neighborhood of Burden Hill and defend their humans from the supernatural.

Reel FX President of Animation Aron Warner will produce alongside Mike Richardson for Dark Horse Entertainment and Andrew Adamson for Strange Weather. The Dallas- and Santa Monica-based Reel FX is also at work on the Guillermo del Toro-produced Day of the Dead-themed Book Of Life, to be released October 10, 2014 by Fox Animation, and the Jimmy Hayward-directed Turkeys, in theaters November 14, 2014 via Relativity Media.
