Sony Developing Medusa Movie as Animated Comedy

Sony Pictures Animation is developing a Medusa movie as an animated comedy, acquiring a pitch by Todd Alcott and Holly Golden.

Lauren Faust, exec producer of the “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” series, is attached to direct “Medusa.”

“In our story, we meet Medusa as a young human, who, like so many of us, is overwhelmed with trying to fit a certain mold to please others,” Faust said. “Her resulting popularity ticks off the wrong Goddess who turns her into the snake-haired monster we all know and fear. Medusa sets out on a quest to reverse this curse with the help of a goofy team of oddball and misfit mythological creatures who help her learn that what makes you different is, in fact, what makes you strong.”

Sony Pictures Animation president of production Michelle Raimo Kouyate will supervise production, along with Jenny Marchick and Daniel Inkeles.

“‘Medusa’ will be a clever, heartfelt animated comedy about a girl who’s having the ultimate bad hair day,” she said.

Allcott was a co-writer on the animated feature “Antz” and worked on the Weinstein Company’s live-action film “The Giver.”
