CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS To The Big Screen! Thanks To DreamWorks Animation

Ok, the following info is freakin’ awesome! After How To Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda 2, and the upcoming PUSS IN BOOTS, I am all for anything that DreamWorks Animation produces. Bring it on!..

Deadline said DWA won the bidding and bought the screen rights to adapt CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS, based on the popular 8-volume children’s book series by Dav Pilkey
DWA has been pursuing the rights since 1997 but the author didn’t want to sell them.. until now.
Here’s to a star of a great new potential franchise..
If you’re not familiar with this character, I suggest reading it up, I think you’re gonna be a fan..

Meet George and Harold, a couple of wise guys. The only thing they enjoy more than playing practical jokes is creating their own comic books. And together they have created the greatest comic-book superhero in the history of their elementary school – CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS!
But George and Harold’s principal, mean old Mr. Krupp, doesn’t like their pranks or their comic books. And he’s cooked up a plan to catch George and Harold and stop their shenanigans – once and for all! This book is about what happened when that plan backfired, and Captain Underpants leaped off the page to save the day!
