SC Films boards Cory Edwards’ 3D animation Wish
EXCLUSIVE: Simon Crowe’s SC Films takes international and joint North American rights to family feature from Prana Studios.
Ahead of the EFM, UK sales outfit SC Films International has taken international rights to 3D animation Wish from Hoodwinked! writer and Escape from Planet Earth co-creator Cory Edwards. SC co-handles North American rights with producers Prana Studios.
The feature, currently in pre-production and due for a Q4 2014 delivery, plunges into the secret world of wishing wells. When a young girl’s wish goes un-granted, a rogue ‘Wish Agent’ and his reluctant team must brave all odds to set things right.
The screenplay was written by Cory Edwards from a story by Will Widger and Patrick Burleigh.
”Wish promises action-adventure, fantasy, heart-warming drama and comedy all wrapped up in a wonderfully entertaining film for all audiences,” said Prana Studios’ creative director Arish Fyzee.
“Prana is known for its spectacular CG animation, and Wish will substantially raise the bar for quality in independent animated pictures. We are excited to be working with Simon Crowe and the SC Films International team, who we think are perfectly suited to handle the upcoming project at Berlin.”
Simon Crowe stated: “I just love this film. It’s a wonderful fantasy world that should be extremely commercial worldwide. Prana have established themselves as a leading animation studio and I’m so excited to see them push the bar in independent animation.”
Special effects and production company Prana’s recent work includes Disney’s Planes, set for wide theatrical release in summer 2013, Disney’s Tinker Bell: Secret of the Wings and Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, Summertime Entertainment’s upcoming Dorothy of Oz, as well as visual effects on Hitchcock and The Watch for Fox.
