Andrew Adamson, co-writer and director of the Shrek films (and currently directing The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), tells SciFi Wire that while he will help write and executive-produce Shrek 3 he will hand over the directoral duties to others. “It’s a story that I’m [emotionally] attached to, and I’m working very closely with Aron Warner, who was the producer of the first two films and is back for the third, and with the directors, Raman Hui and Chris Miller, who were both on the last two films as well [in different capacities]… I think I’ll be listed as an executive producer and probably get a ‘Story By’ credit. I’m really trying not to get too involved in the writing this time”. Shrek 3 is scheduled to be released by DreamWorks in 2007.
