ComicBookResources also has the news that a certain scans_daily favorite will get their own CG movie.

Part of the studio team that brought us Shrek is looking for new material. I think they found gold.

From the article.

The Hollywood Reporter today had the news that "Beasts of Burden" – the multiple award-winning horror mystery series from Evan Dorkin, Jill Thompson and Dark Horse Comics – has been optioned for film by producer Andrew Adamson. The CG-animated project will also include Adamson's partner at Strange Weather Films Aron Warner and Dark Horse's Mike Richardson on the production team. Adamson and Warner previously produced and directed several "Shrek" films for DreamWorks.

I can just see it now in my head, and it will be glorious.

I hope that they do not tone it down for kids and keep up the scare factor and consequences.

I'm getting flashbacks to the recent Garfield and Marmaduke movies, so "glorious" is not necessarily what comes to mind, no.

Whilst the look was spectacular, '9' disappointed me greatly with the ending, as I'd hoped they'd have the courage to take a more... challenging ending.

9 looked pretty, but was ultimately shallow and pointless. Jill Thompson's art is phenomenal, but with stories like Beasts of Burden, it's more about the tone and feel rather than the looks.
Come to think of it, I'd much rather have a traditional cartoon closely following Thompson's style than yet another technically competent, but ultimately soulless Computer generated Animationarama.

I feel an enormous hope (and an enormous fear, but hope trumps fear!) for this film!

Too bad it's not actually Dreamworks Animation, who Guillermo del Toro works for now. That would have been something.

I feel like with DC and Marvel dominating the live-action comic book movies, Dark Horse should use this and The Goon movie to corner the feature animation world rather than try to compete with the big two.

I just hope they make a "We3" movie. Solely so I can encourage people to read it with the exact same wording that I use on the comic:

"It's a story about a puppy and a kitty and a bunny running away from an evil lab so they can go home!"

...yes, I am aware that hell awaits me.

Awesome news though this should be (and I pray will be), I've never liked the Shrek movies that much (still less the central characters, with the exception of Fiona), so any involvement from them doesn't exactly set my heart aflutter.

Anything that puts money in Evan Dorkin's pocket is a good thing. Dude could use a break.
