Sony toons takes shine to Platinum

Duo partner for as-yet-unnamed animated film

Sony Pictures Animation has inked a deal with comicbook library Platinum Studios to develop an as-yet-unnamed animated feature.

Platinum — which controls a cache of comicbook characters that it adapts, produces and licenses for all forms of media — is the company that brought “Men in Black” into the studio fold.

“We’re looking forward to working with (Platinum CEO Scott Rosenberg) and Platinum to develop a feature from their library of stories and (5,600) characters,” said Bob Osher, president of Sony Pictures Digital Prods.

Platinum’s film and TV division has various properties in development around town, including “Atlantis Rising” and “Cowboys and Aliens” at DreamWorks and “Unique” at Disney.

SPA, which recently announced a first-look deal with the Gotham Group, most recently produced “Open Season” and “Surf’s Up.” SPA’s upcoming slate includes “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” “Hotel Transylvania” and “The Smurfs.”
