The Flip Brothers Studio (Ups & Downs, Olivia Against Hollywood) are in final negotiations with unbb24 Productions for their new animated project Hope for the Flowers. The movie is based on the book of the same name by Trina Paulus and focuses on the theme of life and “moving through seeming death to a new and more beautiful life.”
Also in talks for the movie is director Brad Bird. Bird hasn’t had a release in HTG since his year of three in 2012 when he helmed Sailor Moon, Toy Story: World Tour, and The Simpsons Presidential Movie (the latter two for unbb24). Rumor has it that the studio wants Michael Cera, Margot Robbie, and Benedict Cumberbatch to head up the voices in the adaptation, but nothing is final at the moment.
Hope for the Flowers is being planned for an early February release in theaters.
