Pixar's Going Sci-Fi for "Wall-E"Ratatouille." Sci-fi fans in particular should enjoy this news...
According to a rather exuberant report over at Jim Hill Media, Pixar's 2008 project, "Wall-E" looks to be shaping up as some sort of sci-fi masterpiece. I wouldn't go that far, but Jim's pretty psyched about this project -- and it's pretty easy to see why.
Non-spoilery nutshell: It's the year 2700 and the Earth is entirely uninhabitable. On the planet is a lone sanitation robot called "Wall-E" whose long and lonely life is interrupted by the arrival of a newer-model robot.
I don't want to ruin any surprises (and I only read about half the article), but this certainly seems to be one of Pixar's most ambitious productions so far. "Finding Nemo" director Andrew Stanton is the one at the helm on "Wall-E."
Obviously we'll have a lot more on this project as it moves forward.
