‘Darkmouth’ Joins the Family’s Monster Hunting Business



David Pimentel, who was head of story on Moana, and Douglas Sweetland who helmed Storks have been set to direct Darkmouth, an animated feature film from Alcon Entertainment based on Irish author Shane Hegarty’s children’s book series, Deadline reports.

The fantasy adventure, centered on an overeager kid who bites off more than he can chew when he prematurely jumps into the family business: hunting monsters, will be adapted by Lloyd Taylor.

Canyon Creek Films’ Simon Brooks and 8:38’s Kira Davis, who brought the project to Alcon, will produce with Craig Peck and Alcon’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. HarperCollins Children’s Books has published the first three installments of Hegarty’s series: “Darkmouth: The Legends Begin”, “Worlds Explode” and “Chaos Descends” in the UK, Ireland, Australia and the U.S.
