With “The Croods” poised to cross the $400 million mark worldwide, DreamWorks Animation is moving ahead with a sequel to its prehistoric family comedy.
GLENDALE, CA --
DreamWorks Animation is moving ahead with a sequel to its prehistoric family comedy The Croods, according to a report by The Los Angeles Times.
Writers-directors Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders will return for the second installment, which does not yet have a release date.
The Croods, which featured the voices of Nicolas Cage and Emma Stone as a cave-dwelling father and daughter navigating familial and tectonic shifts, garnered modest praise from critics, but received a Cinemascore of A from audiences and went on to gross $142 million domestically after its release March 22.
Worldwide, the film looks poised to cross the $400 million mark next weekend, and it has yet to open in several key territories, including China.
The studio is reportedly in negotiations with voice talent for the sequel.
