Ubisoft will develop and publish a videogame based on Columbia Pictures' and Sony Pictures Animation's CG film, CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS. Designed for handheld and home gaming consoles, CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS is scheduled for release later this year in conjunction with the September 18, 2009 release of the feature film.
The development of CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS videogame is the third such collaboration in a successful partnership, with Ubisoft having produced top-selling video games based on Sony Pictures Animation's OPEN SEASON, and Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature, SURF'S UP.
Sony Pictures Animation's second animated film to be created in stereoscopic 3-D, CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS will be the most delicious event since macaroni met cheese. Inspired by the beloved children's book, the film focuses on a town where food falls from the sky like rain. The film features the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, Andy Samberg, Bruce Campbell, Mr. T, and Tracy Morgan. The film is written and directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord, based on the bestselling children's book written by Judi Barrett and illustrated by Ron Barrett. Pam Marsden is the producer.
