Aardman Entertainment, which produced the exceedingly funny Wallace and Gromit films as well as Chicken Run, has hired John Cleese to help write their next film.
“It will be great comedy adventure about a pre-historic culture clash between two tribes, one comparatively evolved tribe, and one un-evolved tribe,” [Aardman co-founder Peter Lord] said.
“Some might consider one tribe might be the English, and some might consider that the other to be the French, the Gauls.
“Let’s just say it’s the start of the Entente Cordial and it explains why the English Channel is there.”
The Wallace and Gromit feature film, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, is due out this fall. Yay! But there’s not a lot of information available yet. BTW, this seems to be a re-naming from the original title of “The Great Vegetable Plot”.
