Guardians Of Ga'Hoole (July 23rd 2010)
Zack Snyder will be bringing a animated film based on the popular owl tales to the screen. John Colle of Happy Feet has wrote the script so I'm expecting it to a be a family film. This will both be the first family and animated feature for Snyder. "Soren, a young barn owl, is kidnapped by owls of St. Aggie's, ostensibly an orphanage, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers. He and his new friends escape to the island of Ga'Hoole, to assist its noble, wise owls who fight the army being created by the wicked rulers of St. Aggie's. The film is based on the first three books in the series."
Hugh Jackman, Hugo Weaving and Ryan Kwanten will lend their voices to the animated film.
Update: The film seems to be in production and there has been more casting. Rachel Taylor, David Wenham, Geoffrey Rush and Jim Sturgess have all joined the cast.
