By now, I imagine most of you are familiar with the Disney Animated short, Feast. If not, it’s below :). The short is incredibly endearing, and it seems that the Academy felt the same, as the short won an Academy Award.
With that in mind, many are watching the director, Patrick Osborne, to see what he will do next. It would seem that the wait is over, and that Osborne’s next project will be for Paramount Pictures. The film in question is an adaptation of Paul Pope’s indie comic, Battling Boy
A premise of Battling Boy reads: “Monsters roam through Arcopolis, swallowing children into the horrors of their shadowy underworld. Only one man is a match for them – the genius vigilante Haggard West. Unfortunately, Haggard West is dead.
“Arcopolis is desperate, but when its salvation comes in the form of a twelve-year-old demigod, nobody is more surprised than Battling Boy himself.”
I have to admit, I am not overly familiar with the comic of Battling Boy, but with Osborne attached, it may be a project worth keeping our eyes on.
