'Shrek' writer to script film for Shaye, Lynne

Warner Bros. and Unique Features partners Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne have set Joe Stillman to write “Alien Zoo,” a high-concept family comedy.

The film will be produced by Shaye, Lynne and Dylan Sellers.

Based on an original idea by Sellers, the concept is “Jurassic Park” with aliens. The film will be live-action with CGI.

Stillman’s recent script credits include the first two “Shrek” films; the upcoming Jack Black starrer “Gulliver’s Travels”; the animated film “Area 51,” which Sony releases this fall with Dwayne Johnson as the lead voice; and “Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief,” which will be directed by Chris Columbus.
