Sony Pictures Animation Sets New Slate

Sony Pictures Animation is looking to stay in business with Genndy Tartakovsky, attaching him to direct “Hotel Transylvania 2” for the studio as well as a project he developed on his own called “Genndy Tartakovsky Can You Imagine?”

The studio has also tapped Kelly Asbury to direct an all-animated untitled Smurfs pic that is a stand-alone movie from the previous live-action/animated hybrid films that Sony Animation had previously released. That pic will bow August 2015.

Jordan Kerner is producing the untitled Smurfs pic.

“Hotel Transylvania 2” will bow September 2015 with Adam Sandler returning to voice Dracula. Sandler and Robert Smigel are taking on writing duties for the comedy as well.

Tartakovsky is also developing an all-CGI “Popeye” pic for SPA.
