"Hood" Makers to Hatch a New "Escape"
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."
