Production is now underway at Cinesite on Andy Serkis’ animated feature adaptation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm.

The film is produced by Aniventure & Imaginarium.

Animal Farm’s script comes from Nick Stoller (Storks, Captain Underpants) and the film will be produced by Adam Nagle (Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank, HITPIG), Dave Rosenbaum (Secret Life of Pets, HITPIG,) and Imaginarium’s Jonathan Cavendish (Bridget Jones’s Diary, Mowgli : Legend of the Jungle), and Andy Serkis.

Production is underway at Cinesite with talent currently being recruited to begin work on the film and the team is led by producer Connie Thompson (Frankenweenie, Despicable Me 2).

Andy Serkis (Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle) said : “The challenging journey to bring this extraordinary story to the screen has been finally rewarded by the opportunity to  partner with the brilliant team at Aniventure and Cinesite. Together we hope to make our version of Orwell’s ever relevant masterpiece, emotionally powerful, humorous, and relatable for all ages. A tale not only for our times, but for generations to come. “

“Ever since 1945, when George Orwell first published Animal Farm, the story has remained relevant and a key instrument in understanding how the world works,” commented Producer Adam Nagle.  “Andy has had a special talent for creating unique and memorable characters during his remarkable career and we’re thrilled to be working with him, Jonathan and Cinesite to adapt Animal Farm for modern audiences. ”

Aniventure’s upcoming and current releases this year include Mila (Venice Film Festival Humanitarian Award Winner), Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank (in theatres this summer), and HITPIG (to be completed later this year).
