BBC, Evergreen plan 3D dino pic

Natural history project slated for 2012 release

BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, is joining forces with U.S.-based Evergreen Films to make a 3D dinosaur feature through its natural history brand BBC Earth.

The project, which has yet to be titled, will combine factual content about the prehistoric age with a story about the relentless struggle to survive.

BBC Earth creative director Neil Nightingale and commercial director Amanda Hill will work with Evergreen producer John Copeland and co-founders Pierre de Lespinois and Mike Devlin on the pic, which is slated for a 2012 release.

Pic will bring together the makers of BBC productions including “Walking With Dinosaurs,” “Life” and docu series “Planet Earth” (which was made into the feature, “Earth,” and grossed $109 million worldwide) with the team behind “When Dinosaurs Roamed America” and “Dinosaur Planet.”

Narrator has yet to be announced.

“The possibilities with dinosaurs are endless and we intend to explore every avenue,” said Marcus Arthur, managing director of global brands for BBC Worldwide.

“The real dinosaur story outstrips anything you might find in science fiction and we’re incredibly excited about showing our audience, on an epic scale, what their world really looked like 70 million years ago,” De Lespinois said.
