HOLLYWOOD – Jon Favreau announces live action Bojack Horseman for 2019.
Jungle Book and Lion King director Jon Favreau today announced that a new live action version of Bojack Horseman will be his next project. He spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec about the project.
Yeah, we’ve got Will Arnet and Aaron Paul to reprise their roles and we’re going to use Andy Serkis because apparently you’re not allowed to do anything with motion capture unless Andy is involved.
Why is that?
Fuck knows. It’s a kind of law.
So it’s going to be live action: how will that work?
It’s easy really. We film regular exteriors and interior with the actors, on location or in a studio and then we digitally paint over everything with animation and then we check it with the original until it’s almost exactly like it was on the cartoon. We’re going to be true to the original version as much as possible.
So why make it live action?
I’m not sure. It’s just the way my career is going.
I honestly thought someone would have picked up Chef 2 by now. I have Anthony Bourdain writing the script, but the fucker’s not returning my calls.
