WB taps NeoPets pic scribe

Lieber to pen project based on kids Web site

Warner Bros. Pictures has hired scribe Rob Lieber to pen the first CG-animated feature resulting from the studio’s pact with popular kids Web site NeoPets.

Studio and Warners-based producer Dylan Sellers are working with John A. Davis to direct and co-produce the pic. Davis is currently helming animated pic “Ant Bully” for Warners.

Producers are keeping the concept and logline for the NeoPets project under tight wraps. Created in 1991, NeoPets is tracked by millions of kids who log on to take care of their own virtual pets, as well as follow storylines about other pets who populate Neopia.

Warners inked the deal with NeoPets before Viacom bought the Web site. NeoPets has the option to co-finance and co-produce any NeoPets pic with Warner.
