WB Circles Pitch for Peacock Pic

Warner Bros. is looking to get back into animated features.

The studio is in talks to pick up an untitled pitch for an animated feature about a peacock from writers Austin Winsberg and Heath Corson, according to trade reports.

Details of the project are being kept under wraps, but the film will be produced by Trevor Engelson and Nicholas Osborne through their company Underground Management banner.

While Warner Bros. produces plenty of animated content for TV and home entertainment, it hasn’t been involved in an animated theatrical feature since Happy Feet.
