Steinberg dons ‘Boots’

D'Works lets cat out of bag

DreamWorks has hired scribe David H. Steinberg to write the animated pic “Puss in Boots,” based on the character voiced by Antonio Banderas in “Shrek 2.”

Banderas will return to voice the pic, which is part of DreamWorks’ slate for 2008. It’s unclear at this point whether the title will receive a theatrical release or, like many animated sequels, go directly to DVD.

However, Steinberg’s six-figure deal suggests the studio has an interest in making a run at a theatrical release.

Steinberg’s credits include “Slackers” and co-writing “American Pie 2” for Universal. He’s also writing the remake of MGM’s “Love at First Bite” as well as “Other People’s Wishes” for Warner Bros. Pictures.
