BERLIN — Andy Vajna took a beating with “Basic Instinct 2,” but that has not stymied the producer from taking on another challenge.
The man behind the “Terminator” franchise plans to adapt the cult book “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” as an animated feature.
“The script is ready and we’re getting the picture lined up now,” he said. “Some of the animation is going to be done at my CGI workshop in Hungary but I’d also like to do some in Berlin, the Far East and Los Angeles.”
Vajna has yet to announce who’s going to helm the pic.
“Jonathan Livingston Seagull” was adapted for the big screen in 1973 by Hal Bartlett as a real-life pic with lots of beautiful shots of birds flying — and not much action.
“This film is going to be very different, more along the lines of ‘Shrek,’ ” added Vajna.
As for financing, Vajna should have little trouble: He owns two casinos in Hungary.
