Brad Bird Gives Update on Toy Story 3 and 1906

LatinoReview was able to catch up Brad Bird at the premiere of Coraline, and got an update on his live-action debut, a big screen adaptation of James Dalessandro’s novel 1906.

“We’re looking at places to shoot it. The script I’m still working. It’s a really hard script to write. And mostly because there are so many interesting things going on in that place and that particular period of time that anytime you’re going towards something, you’re going away from 5 other cool things. So it’s been really hard for me to write. but I think it’s going to great. and we’ll see IF they have the courage to make.”

He also said there are actors involved but wouldn’t reveal any names.

Here is the plot of the novel via /Film:

Set during the great San Francisco earthquake and fire, this page-turning historical novel reveals recently uncovered facts that forever change our understanding of what really happened. Narrated by a feisty young reporter, Annalisa Passarelli, the novel paints a vivid picture of the Post-Victorian city, from the mansions of Nob Hill to the underbelly of the Barbary Coast to the arrival of tenor Enrico Caruso and the Metropolitan Opera. Central to the story is the ongoing battle fought even as the city burns that pits incompetent and unscrupulous politicians against a coalition of honest police officers, newspaper editors, citizens, and a lone federal prosecutor. James Dalessandro weaves unforgettable characters and actual events into a compelling epic.

Brad Bird also spoke with MTV and gave an update on Toy Story 3:

“It’s about ready to go into production. They’re just about finished with “Up!” and then the animators will regain their senses for a few weeks.” Though I pressed him for more details, Brad only laughed. “You’re trying to trick me! There are some new characters, yes. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
