BREAKING: Sony Pictures Animation has turned to its The Smurfs scribes, Jay Scherick & David Ronn, to script Popeye, the animated adaptation of the comic book. SPA and Avi Arad are producing Popeye, which will be a 3D stereoscopic effort. ”Scherick & Ronn have a remarkable talent in re-energizing beloved characters,” said Sony Pictures Digital Productions president Bob Osher. “As they demonstrated with The Smurfs, they embrace the iconic characteristics of these timeless characters and craft a story that really engages moviegoers today.” The scribes are already working on a Smurfs sequel, and they also wrote the original script for Baywatch. They are repped by ICM.
