Warner invests in ‘Future’

Studio 'Wild' about animated project

Warner Bros. has boarded the feature version of animated docu series “The Future Is Wild.”

Development deal was struck between the studio and producer John H. Williams’ Vanguard Films and series creator John Adams as well as brand partners Gerhard Sieber and Ettore Botta.

The animated/live-action/animatronic project involves a group of scientists and zoologists and their projections for what Earth could look like over the next 200 million years.

“It’s a freaky, fantastical interpretation but also a scientifically based version of what the evolution of Earth looks like — with or without us,” Williams told Daily Variety.

Courtenay Valenti and Matt Milam will oversee the project at Warners.

The first “Future” TV series (2002) was co-produced with Discovery, ZDF, ORF, Grupo Planeta and Mediatrade. It ran on Animal Planet in the U.S. and overseas on NHK and the BBC, among other broadcasters. A second series will be unveiled at Mipcom next week.

Williams is currently finishing “Space Chimps 2,” which he also directed. As a producer, he’s prepping Roald Dahl adaptation “The Twits,” with Working Title for Universal.

The “Future” brand has spawned a theme-park rides, books, toys, manga comics and an Emmy-nommed animated kids TV series.
