Weinsteins, Exodus seal ‘Navy’ deal

Film is first project under CG-animation pact

The Weinstein Co. and Exodus Film Group have set “Navy Seals” as the first film under their recently announced CG-animation co-production pact.

Under the strategic partnership unveiled in Cannes, TWC and Exodus will jointly develop, produce and finance a slate of CG-animated feature films, DVDs and TV series. The seeds for the partnership were sowna year ago, when TWC picked up worldwide distribution rights to Exodus’ first CG-animated film, “Igor.” That film is set for U.S. release on Oct. 24.

“Navy Seals,” an adventuresome family comedy developed by Exodus, tells the story of an elite pod of U.S. Navy dolphins who are captured. Their only hope for rescue is a group of seals.

“Our goal has been to develop ideas inhouse that are original and dynamic and will resonate with audiences of all ages,” said Exodus chief exec John D. Eraklis. “Navy Seals” is “inspired by the very real heroics that marine mammals have played in the defense of our country.”

Harvey Weinstein called the project “the perfect way to jumpstart our strategic partnership with Exodus.”
