According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, Moritz will produce the project, bringing along an extensive resume of production credits that includes the "Fast and the Furious" franchise and 2007's "I Am Legend".

The movie will be a blend of CGI and live-action, similar to Roger Rabbit and The Smurfs.
