Wallace And Gromit: They'll Be Clay Again
A day after DreamWorks Animation severed its relationship with Aardman Animation, citing its unprofitable releases of Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were Rabbit in 2005 and Flushed Away in 2006, Aardman said it is developing a new Wallace and Gromit movie. An Aardman spokesman told Reuters that Nick Park, who created the characters, is working on a script for a new feature. "What we have achieved [as a result of the split with DreamWorks Animation] is our freedom to make the film we want to make," spokesman Arthur Sheriff said Wednesday. Unlike Flushed Away, which was produced using computer animation, the new film will be produced using Aardman's signature Claymation technique. "Nick loves creating stories for Wallace and Gromit and he feels they only really work in plasticine," Sheriff said.
