Chris Columbus, Timoon Team for Scary Larry
Timoon Animation and director Chris Columbus’ 1492 Pictures have teamed up to produce the $7 million animated series Scary Larry, Variety reports.
Based on Little Gloomy, a Slave Labor Graphics comic book series, the 52 x 13 min. series is about a teen werewolf who forms a rock band with his monster friends. Annabelle Perrichon will adapt the show from the comic.
French channels Canal Plus and Teletoon have pre-bought broadcast rights to the series.
Timoon is the animation-production arm of France-based Lagardere Entertainment.
Columbus has extensive live-action credits, including directing the first two Harry Potter feature films, Home Alone and Home Alone 2, Mrs. Doubtfire, Rent and Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. This is his first animated series.
The comic book was created by Landry Walker and Eric Jones, and was first published in 1999.
