Reel FX Animation Studios announced that Oscar®-nominated director Chris Miller will helm its upcoming original feature, the currently Untitled Wish Project. Miller, a longtime DreamWorks Animation filmmaker, wrote and directed the hit film Puss in Boots, which garnered an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature Film, and Shrek The Third, the third hit installment in the acclaimed franchise. Both titles achieved huge commercial success at the box office and generated a combined gross of nearly $1.4 billion.
The Untitled Wish Project storyline is being kept under-wraps, but the film will take place in both the real world and a world of mythical creatures where human wishes are heard and dealt with.
Jared Mass, who heads up Reel FX’s Originals Unit, said of Miller, “He brings a vision to the film that is sure to resonate with audiences all over the world.”
Reel FX Animation Studios is a top producer of animation for every major studio as well as a producer of original content including the film Book Of Life, which was produced alongside Guillermo Del Toro for Twentieth Century Fox. Reel FX is currently in production on its next original feature with Paramount Animation and Walden Media based on the kids’ graphic novel “Monster on the Hill,” which is set to be released in 2020.
