A new Peanuts feature film will be hitting theaters in 2015 according to Peanuts Worldwide – the joint venture between Iconix Brand Group and Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates. The film is written by Charles M. Schulz’ son, Craig.
From the press release:
Craig Schulz, President, Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, commented, “We have been working on this project for years. We finally felt the time was right and the technology is where we need it to be to create this film. I am thrilled we will be partnering with Blue Sky/Fox to create a Peanuts movie that is true to the strip and will continue the legacy in honor of my father.”
The film will be directed by Steve Martino (“Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who”, “Ice Age: Continental Drift”) and distributed through Twentieth Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios. It opens the day before Thanksgiving 2015 which is also the year the strip celebrates 65 years.
