DreamWorks Animation and Paramount will release the fourth installment in the lucrative “Shrek” franchise May 21, 2010.
So far, the animated green ogre has the date alone.
Warner Bros. has set its release of filmmaker Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen” for March 6, 2009. Pic, Snyder’s follow-up to “300,” begins lensing this fall.
In an earnings call earlier this week, DreamWorks Animation topper Jeffrey Katzenberg announced there will be a fifth “Shrek” as well.
“Shrek the Third,” bowing earlier this summer, has grossed more than $320 million at the domestic box office and nearly $400 million overseas.
