DreamWorks greenlights animated ghost project 'Boo U'
DreamWorks Animation is pushing forward with a new untitled ghost project, referred to internally as Boo U., about a ghost who is bad at his job and must return to ghost school. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tony Leondis (Igor) will direct, and writer Jon Vitti (The Simpsons Movie) has been tapped for the screenplay. DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has said the ghost picture would hit theaters in late 2012. Meanwhile, Katzenberg has mandated that all future projects will be made in the 3D format. 2009’s Monsters vs. Aliens has grossed $362 million worldwide.
