Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell to produce animated movie

Simon Cowell is producing an animated film.

The 'X Factor' judge and TV producer is branching out into movies and claims that he has already sold an idea for a cartoon caper - which he has been working on for 10 years - to a movie studio.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''I have an animation movie I have just sold. It's my concept. It's an idea I had 10 years ago and the first studio I've gone to wants it.

''Making an animation is something I've always, always, wanted to do because I love cartoons. We only did the deal a few weeks ago so I'm not allowed to say any more.''

Despite remaining tight-lipped, it's thought the music and TV mogul - who has previously declared his love for family fare such as 'The Flinstones' and 'Mr. Popper's Penguins' - may lend his voice to the project in an acting role too.

A source said: ''He wants to feature in some way. He also wants the biggest Hollywood A-listers to do the voiceovers. Don't be surprised if one or two familiar faces from his reality shows appear, too.''

Cowell is also set to produce two upcoming films - Morgan Spurlock's One Direction documentary 'This Is Us', and a biopic on 'Britain's Got Talent' winner Paul Potts starring James Corden.

He said: ''I am definitely looking to make more movies. We've already started with the Paul Potts film and One Direction movie but expect more.''
