DWA hops on bunny’s tale feature

Tim Johnson to direct 'Rumblewick'

DreamWorks Animation will be bringing witches and a magician’s rabbit to the bigscreen with “Rumblewick,” a feature toon helmed by “Antz” director Tim Johnson.

“Meet the Fockers” helmer Jim Herzfeld will collaborate with Johnson on the script, inspired by children’s book “My Unwilling Witch (The Rumblewick Letters)” by Hiawyn Oram and Sarah Warburton.

Execs Chris Kuser and Gregg Taylor will oversee the project for DreamWorks.

“The fascinating world of witches and witch’s familiars is perfectly suited for the medium of animation, where anything goes,” said DreamWorks Animation’s Chief Creative Officer Bill Damaschke in a statement.

Rumblewick will follow a magician’s rabbit as he tries to “save his fuzzy little hide” from being a pawn in a game between two rival witches.
