‘The Great Gatsby’ to Be Tailored as Animated Characteristic From DNEG Animation
Creator William Joyce is about to direct an animated model of the traditional F. Scott Fitzgerald novel “The Great Gatsby.” Brian Selznick, who wrote and tailored 2017’s “Wonderstruck,” will work on the screenplay.
Michael Siegel and DNEG Senior VP Artistic Manufacturing David Prescott be part of Joyce as producers on the animated function movie. DNEG Characteristic Animation will present animation providers.
This marks the primary time the 1925 novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald can be changed into an animated function. Its most up-to-date adaptation was for Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan.
Joyce mentioned, “Gatsby continues to cast a powerful spell over readers unlike any other book in American letters. Much of the power of Gatsby comes from the enchantment of Fitzgerald’s prose. He created a vivid dreamscape that, to some degree, has eluded filmmakers since the silent era. The previous film versions were constrained by live-action, but innovative animation could finally realize the elusive quality of the novel.”
Prescott added, “We are in the perfect time for an animated Gatsby. Viewers of all ages are embracing animation as another way to experience different stories. Bill and I have been floating a variety of ideas around over the last few years, discussing ideal stories to bring to the screen, and I do feel that ‘The Great Gatsby’ is one such story. The style of animation and imagery we are creating for this project are so beautifully married together.”
DNEG Characteristic Animation has been working with William Joyce, the youngsters’s’ writer, producer and director, on an authentic animated brief titled “Mr. Spam Gets a New Hat.”
The workforce, headed by DNEG’s Taylor Moll as Visible Results Supervisor, has been creating the animated challenge inside Unreal Engine, pushing the boundaries of what real-time sport engine expertise can convey to manufacturing function animation. Moll mentioned, “We are incredibly excited about the new methodologies we are employing on this short film with Bill and cannot wait to bring this same workflow to ‘The Great Gatsby.’”
