Spyro the Dragon Coming to the Big Screen?


The Animation Picture Company has optioned the rights to turn Spyro the Dragon, the purple star of Sierra Entertainment and Vivendi Game’s video game franchise, into an animated feature.

APC’s Dan Chuba, John Davis, Mark Dippe, Brian Manis and Ash Shah will produce the CG-animated film as a 3-D feature.

Steve and Dan Altiere, who wrote the fourth installment of Fox’s “Dr. Dolittle” franchise, will write the script, to be based around the recently released “Legend of Spyro” trilogy of games, which is considered a relaunch of the entire series.

No director has yet been hired.
