"Hood" Makers to Hatch a New "Escape"

The "Hoodwinked!" filmmakers have found a few friends in the Weinstein brothers. They'll soon be backing Tony Leech & Cory Edwards' "Escape from Planet Earth," a CG comedy about Area 51 and the creatures who'd love to escape the facility.

From Variety: "Following the December rollout of its irreverent fairytale take "Hoodwinked!," the Weinstein Co. has been left with an insatiable appetite for CG-animated material. After greenlighting a "Hoodwinked!" sequel, and picking up Exodus Film Group's upcoming CG comedy "Igor," TWC has snapped up "Escape From Planet Earth," based on a pitch from "Hoodwinked!" scribes Tony Leech and Cory Edwards.

Leech also will helm "Earth," a comedy about a prison break from Area 51, a mysterious government facility where the inmates are a rag-tag group of aliens. Pic's protagonist is Gary, one neurotic extraterrestrial."
