3D ‘Postman’ en route

Theatrical release planned for spring 2013

U.K. tyke favorite “Postman Pat” will deliver his first movie as the character celebrates his 30th birthday.

“Postman Pat: The Movie — You Know You’re the One,” a collaboration between Classic Media and Rubicon Group Holding, starts production this month with a planned 3D theatrical release for spring 2013.

Voice cast is led by Stephen Mangan, with support from Jim Broadbent, Rupert Grint and David Tennant.

The screenplay is co-written by the Kim Full and Annika Bluhm, longtime producer of the “Postman Pat” TV skein.

Producers are RGH’s Robert Anich and Miles Horst alongside Classic Media’s Ceri Barnes and Bluhm. Exec producers are Rubicon’s Randa Ayoubi and David Corbett and Classic Media’s Eric Ellenbogen and Doug Schwalbe.

Story revolves around Pat facing a moral crisis as he comes face-to-face with the temptations of money, status and a shiny new suit when he enters a national TV talent show competition.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be playing the world’s best-known postman in his bigscreen debut — he’s an iconic British hero and it’s a great script,” Mangan said. “However when I excitedly told my 3-year-old son that I was going to be Postman Pat, he said, ‘No you’re not, Dad, don’t be silly.’ ”

Corbett said: “The timeless ‘Postman Pat’ franchise with its signature stop-motion animation is perfectly suited to evolve into a three-dimensional world through the use of the latest 3D technology. I look forward to working with our talented teams in Los Angeles, Amman and Manila to create an entertaining and memorable ‘Postman Pat’ movie experience for children and parents alike.”
