DreamWorks greenlights animated ghost project 'Boo U'

DreamWorks Animation is pushing forward with a new untitled ghost project, referred to internally as Boo U., about a ghost who is bad at his job and must return to ghost school. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tony Leondis (Igor) will direct, and writer Jon Vitti (The Simpsons Movie) has been tapped for the screenplay. DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has said the ghost picture would hit theaters in late 2012. Meanwhile, Katzenberg has mandated that all future projects will be made in the 3D format. 2009's Monsters vs. Aliens has grossed $362 million worldwide.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this a bit like Casper’s Scare School?

    I don’t know if it sounds like Casper’s Scare Scool or not. I’ve never even heard of Casper’s Scare School. I do know that the concept for this film sounds super cute and will be taking the kids to see this one for sure.

    Josh, you’re quite perceptive you hit it right on the dang head. What do you mean? Are you mental? DUH!

    I’ll see anything Seth’s in at the moment.
    Maybe there’s a more honest and poignant film there somewhere as a reflection of the aimlessness of death. They’ll keep it light-hearted, of course.
