'The Fantastic Mr. Fox' - Another Leaked Wes Anderson Script?

You may remember that the script for Wes Anderson’s upcoming film The Darjeeling Limited surfaced online back in April. Again, it appears that another Anderson project, the animated adaptation of children’s book The Fantastic Mr. Fox has made the rounds and has been posted online. Anderson and Noah Baumbach re-teamed after The Life Aquatic to hash out a screenplay based on the Roald Dahl book, first published in 1970. Dahl, who died in 1990, crafted a handful of books that have transitioned to the big screen, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (twice over), and James and the Giant Peach, and his stories and scripts have been produced for television over the past 50 years. Anderson’s version of Fox will incorporate a few different animation techniques, but will largely be stop-motion based.

George Clooney and Cate Blanchett are already attached (confirmed) for voice work on Fantastic Mr. Fox, while Jason Schwartzman and Anjelica Huston’s names have also been floating out there for about as long as this project has been around. Anderson has been said to be in pre-production for Fox even during shooting for Darjeeling Limited in late 2006/early 2007, and will find time to start production in earnest now that Darjeeling shooting has wrapped. (Release for Darjeeling is scheduled for Christmas Day, 2007. Life Aquatic was also released on Christmas Day.)

The (alleged) Fantastic Mr. Fox script was dug up at Oh No, who also outed the Darjeeling script.

Previously: Clooney and Blanchett, Foxy.

    so have you read it yet?

  2. Ted Z Says:

    I skimmed, though I don’t know if I’ll read it. Probably opt to save the surprise. I will say that I’m infinitely more interested in this project that I am in Darjeeling, which seems to be more of the same. Looking forward to a new direction from Wes.

    Nice website by the way, Kory.

    As you can imagine, our customers would be upset if their floors were
    not clean after we completed our work. At our store,
    we will even drill holes in tools to allow freer airflow
    at the tool. Whether a vacuum is a quality product depends on many factors,
    but customers that pay attention to brand names, recalls,
    and other issues will likely locate a vacuum cleaner that is the highest quality in the price
    range that they wish to pay.

    Custom logo design is the ultimate choice for you if you want
    to give a professional look to your business instead of a childish and
    immature look. Logo design companies should realize it that this is
    not the way to attract the clients to get orders, rather at
    the end of the day; it will be creating
    problems and nothing else for them. If your colors are touching that’s considered
    tight registration.
