Gaumont unit tunes up half-hour series

'Very Viking' first live-action project for Alphanim

French mini-major Gaumont’s toon company Alphanim is moving into live-action kids entertainment, developing 26 half-hours of “Very Viking.”

Budgeted at e4.5 million ($6.1 million), “Viking” is set up as international venture with Nickelodeon in Germany, Benelux and Scandinavia, Lime Productions in the U.K. and Studio Campedelli in Italy.

Combining live action and some animation, the London-set show will be produced at Lime Prods.

The fish-out-of-the-water series follows a Viking family faced with modern-day life after spending 1,000 years frozen in an iceberg.

Another project in development at Gaumont Alphanim is a feature-length adaptation of Jack London’s novel “White Fang.” Dominique Monfery is on board to direct. Clavet said the company is considering making the film in S3D and is looking for international partners. Budget is estimated at around $14 million.

Monfery was nominated for an Oscar in 2004 for his animated short “Destino.”
