Cary Granat and Ed Jones' new company Bedrock Studios announced on Wednesday that its first project will be the animated buddy film Turkeys, to be directed by Ash Brannon (Toy Story 2).
Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson will voice the turkeys that discover a time machine and travel back to the first Thanksgiving to take themselves off the menu. Luke Wilson is also voicing a character.
Targeted for a 2011 release, the film is written and produced by John J. Strauss (There's Something About Mary) and David I. Stern (Open Season 2). Peter Farrelly will executive produce.
Bedrock is also developing Rats of NIMH, A Wrinkle in Time and Dinosaur Bob.
Rats of NIMH is based on Robert C. O'Brien's children's adventure book that tells the story of a field mouse who finds help in a group of former laboratory rats; Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time is a classic fantasy-adventure story following three kids who go on a journey to rescue their father and save the world; and Dinosaur Bob is based on the William Joyce novel which follows a dinosaur and his adventures with a family.
