‘Cat in Paris’ Makers Set Up ‘Phantom Boy’ for 2015

Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol — directors of the French animated film A Cat in Paris — are reuniting to make a new animated feature film called Phantom Boy, reports Variety.

The duo mostly will reprise its situation on Cat for the new film, with France-based Folimage set to handle animation and Belgium’s Lunanime co-producing.

Folimage founder Jacque-Remy Girerd is producer on the film, which is budgeted at about $7.6 million, and a screenplay is almost finished, Variety says.

Phantom Boy is about 11-year-old boy in the hospital who can fly over the city and pass through walls like a phantom, using his powers to help a wheelchair-bound police officer hunt down a mob kingpin.

The film will made as a mix of traditional 2D animation on paper and computer painting.

Phantom Boy is scheduled for delivery in 2015.
