The film is now in the hands of Chris Sanders, who is best known as the co-writer-director of Lilo & Stitch. Sanders just left Disney, where he had been taken off American Dog, supposedly for making it "too quirky for its own good." He plans to do a significant rewrite on Crood, which will probably lose much of its British flavor, though if we're lucky will also be filled with lots of quirk. The other major difference between what the project used to be and what it is now is the style of its animation. Under Aardman the film was expected to be made with claymation, the studio's usual medium despite its use of computers for Flushed Away, but now it will certainly be done with computer animation -- and shot with 3-D projection in mind, of course. We have plenty of years before we get to see if DreamWorks' rearrangement works out, as the studio won't be able to release the film until 2010 or 2011.
