Nikki Finke scooped last night that Paramount Animation is working up a live action/computer animation feature and potential franchise based on monster trucks. Ice Age helmer and Blue Sky Studios Chris Wedge is in final talks to direct the pic, the second film to come out of the division after the SpongeBob SquarePants feature. Now both have release dates: Paramount said today that SpongeBob SquarePants 2 will open wide February 13, 2015, and Monster Trucks will open on May 29, 2015. Monster Trucks is being eyed as a $100M budget film that should start production in first-half 2014. Mary Parent is producing both movies, which are being written by Jonathan Aibel & Glenn Berger.
