The last time Jack Black voiced an animated film KUNG FU PANDA went on to be one of the 30 highest grossing movies of the decade ($631 million worldwide). While a KUNG FU sequel is in the works, Black is also developing a separate animated film he's set up with Chris Meledandri (ICE AGE). While the film doesn't yet have a title, it will center around "cryptozoology," the study of creatures who seemingly don't exist (like the Lochness Monster, Bigfoot, Chupacabra, etc.).

Black pitched the project with writer Jason Micallef and in addition to voicing the film, he'll also act as producer alongside Meledandri who has a first-look deal at Universal Pictures. Black and Meledandri previously worked together on the original ICE AGE, where Black voiced Zeke. Meledandri's first animated project an Universal, the upcoming DESPICABLE ME, stars Steve Carell, Jason Segel and Russell Brand. Black can be seen next in the Fox family adventure flick GULLIVER'S TRAVELS.

Good idea

Im not a writer (yet?) but i jot ideas down and this was always one of them. Kinda like a Van Helsing but with the cryptozoology theme. There hasnt been a cool movie about Bigfoot or anything since...Harry and the Hendersons? Strange Wilderness was brutal, and even though this is animated, I'll take it.

I've pretty much grown tired of Jack Black and his schtick. He used to give me some chuckles from his Tenacious D album but his films that I've seen haven't been too funny. Overexposed maybe?
