Helmers set for ‘Cloudy 2’ toon

Sony Animation taps Cameron, Pearn for sequel

Sony Animation artists Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn are set to direct “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2,” the first major studio feature for the duo, a studio source tells Variety.

Project is still in development and does not yet have a greenlight.

Sony bet on fresh faces to helm the original 2009 toon, too: Phil Lord and Chris Miller had directed only cult MTV toon “Clone High” before helming “Meatballs,” which went on to gross more than $230 million worldwide. The duo will serve as exec producers on “Meatballs 2.”

Both Cameron and Pearn also worked on the first film.Pearn served as head of story while Cameron was a story artist. The latter also directed the animation studio’s family comedy “Open Season 3,” which got a home video release last year.

Longtime Sony Animation producer Kirk Bodyfelt, who produced the second and third installments of “Open Season,” will produce the “Cloudy” sequel from a script by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.

Studio is keeping the logline under wraps, but pic will continue the adventures of inventor Flint Lockwood.
