The Hollywood Reporter says Casey Affleck, the Oscar-nominated younger brother of Ben, pitched an animated film called Aardvark Art’s Ark two years ago and is still developing it at Warner Brothers, though a new screenwriter has been brought in to do the rewrites while Affleck takes care of his busy acting career.
The paper says the film concerns “a group of animals who are stranded when they are not chosen to go on Noah’s ark.”
That brings the number of recent and in-development Noah’s Ark cartoons — whether literal or quasi-allegorical — up to six. Other such films that I have noted here include:
- The Flood — Promenade Pictures
- Rock the Boat — Gaumont
- Noah’s Ark — Unified Pictures
- El Arca — Patagonik Film Group
- The Missing Lynx — Kandor Graphics
