Klasky Csupo & Nick Knot Film Ties
Klasky Csupo and Nickelodeon Movies have tied the knot on an exclusive multi-year deal to develop and produce animated feature films. The new partnership comes from the pair's successful production of THE RUGRATS MOVIE and the forthcoming RUGRATS IN PARIS. The first two projects from the new agreement slated to hit the drawing boards are POLITENESS MAN and COOKIE COMPANY. The AUSTIN POWERS-like POLITENESS MAN is based off of Ron Barrett's classic National Lampoon comic strip. The story will follow the exploits of a secret agent, whom excels in the fields of manners, hygiene and etiquette. The scribes attached to the project are David Silverman and Stephen Sustarsic of Nick/Klasky's THE WILD THORNBERRYS TV series. Based on Ross Venokur's children books, COOKIE COMPANY weaves the strange story of a Chinese food delivery man who randomly distributes mystical fortune cookies. Venokur is set to adapt a script from his work. Currently, Nick and Klasky Csupo are in pre-production on THE WILD THORNBERRYS' feature.
