Disney’s Maleficent, a live-action take on the villainess from the animated 1959 movie Sleeping Beauty, is currently in post-production and getting ready for release next year. Meanwhile, Maleficent director Robert Stromberg is looking to the future and his follow-up project.
According to Variety, Stromberg will be making a film called Safari as his sophomore effort. The trade publication pitches Safari as, “Jurassic Park meets Avatar,” which conjures up an image of some planet somewhere where dinosaurs still run wild and free, until some evil corporation shows up and makes it a pen where rich bastards can pay to hunt them. Anyway, it’s got possibility.
The announcement of the film accompanied the official launch of Hydra Entertainment, a “development studio focused on producing live-action and CG movies.” Safari will be one of its first productions.
More news as it develops.
