The Rabbids are headed to the movies, thanks to a deal between Lionsgate and Ubisoft. The deal expands the franchise, which has sold more than 15 million games worldwide and spawned a television show that airs in more than 110 countries.
Mandeville Film’s Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman are producing alongside Jason Altman and Margaret Boykin from Ubisoft Film & Television. Mandeville’s Alex Young will executive produce. The group is currently in advanced talks with Todd Strauss-Schulson (“Isn’t It Romantic,” “A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas,” and “Final Girls”) to direct.
The screenplay was written by “Robot Chicken’s” Matt Senreich, Tom Sheppard, and Zeb Well, and was revised by Todd Rosenberg.
