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.
Jennifer Wolfe is Director of News & Content at Animation World Network.
