STUDIOCANAL AND AARDMAN ARE ANNOUNCING THE NEW AARDMAN STUDIOS FILM ‘EARLY MAN’ BY FOUR TIME ACADEMY AWARD WINNER NICK PARK
STUDIOCANAL and Aardman announced a new partnership on an exciting and hilarious new adventure from the award-winning Aardman, the creators of SHAUN THE SHEEP and WALLACE & GROMIT. This is their second film together after Shaun the Sheep the Movie directed by Mark Burton and Richard Starzak.
EARLY MAN is a stop-frame feature film by BAFTA and Academy Award winning director, Nick Park, produced by Aardman. It also marks Park's first film since WALLACE & GROMIT: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT. Park also co-directed CHICKEN RUN.
Supported by accomplished screenwriters Mark Burton and John O’Farrell, this new film will take audiences into a dramatic prehistoric world. Set at the dawn of time, when dinosaurs and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, EARLY MAN tells the story of how one plucky caveman unites his tribe against a mighty enemy and saves the day!
EARLY MAN continues the production partnership with STUDIOCANAL and Aardman following the success of SHAUN THE SHEEP THE MOVIE. With 20 territories still to release the film including key markets such as Latin America, China and the US (by Lionsgate on August 7th), the film has been an impressive debut for the partnership.
STUDIOCANAL is financing the film and will distribute it in its 5 territories and is handling international sales. The BFI (British Film Institute) is also a partner on the film. Sales will start in Cannes Film Festival.
