Animation Lab goes ‘Wild’

New Israeli toon studio Animation Lab has greenlit its first feature, “The Wild Bunch.”

Script by “Mulan” and “Pocahontas” writer Philip LaZebnik centers on a group of genetically modified cornstalks who attack a group of common wildflowers.

CGI toon will be directed by Alex Williams, an industry vet who has worked on animated features including “Open Season,” “Robots” and “Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas.” “Wild Bunch” will be his debut as a director.

Jim Ballantine (“Brother Bear 2,” “Bambi 2”) is producing.

“Wild Bunch” is the first of six toon features Animation Lab is looking to make in the next eight years with budgets around $20 million.
