“The Book of Life” Jorge R. Gutierrez has signed on to a multi-picture deal with Reel FX Animation Studios that Deadline reports will kick off with a kung fu space Western.
Currently untitled, the movie will follow a group of intergalactic rebels whose clash with a renowned outlaw might just determine the fate of the cosmos.
“Our heartfelt film will be a funny mash-up of some of my favorite influences: ’90s kung fu films, spaghetti Westerns of the ’60s, and the epic space adventures of the ’70s, ’80s and today,” Gutierrez explained.
Gutierrez, who co-wrote the script with Douglas Langdale, will direct and produce. Brad Booker will also produce and Sandra Equihua is on board for character design.
“The Book of Life” was nominated for a Golden Globe.
