Cory Edwards to direct live-action fantasy

Hoodwinked! director Cory Edwards announced at his blog today that he may soon be making his live-action directorial debut:

I’m pleased to finally announce that I have closed a deal to direct a feature film for 20th Century Fox. “ANDREW HENRY’S MEADOW” is a kid-centered fantasy adventure, executive produced by Zach Braff and written by his brother, Adam Braff. The film is also being produced by John Davis and Derek Dauchy for Davis Entertainment (“I Robot,” “Alien Vs. Predator,” “Eragon”).

Based on the beloved children’s book, this story from the brothers Braff has all the movie ingredients that I love: comedy, action, gadgets, and big effects. It will all be set in a highly-stylized world, with art direction similar to movies like “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Time Bandits” and “Brazil.” . . .

Edwards notes that the studio hasn’t actually given the project a “green light” yet — partly because he and the Braffs are still developing the script! But hey, at least they are developing it.
