Lorenzo’s Oil director George Miller’s next film will be a marked departure from his new tearjerker — and from his previous Mad Max and Road Warrior flicks. It’ll be Sheep-Pig, a kids’ movie about an orphaned swine raised by sheepdogs. ”The pig assumes he’s a dog,” Miller says, ”and he eventually becomes a world-class champion sheepdog.” Production is slated to begin in April.
