Partnering with Noah Baumbach to adapt the Roald Dahl classic, Wes Anderson will direct and produce the picture. Likewise, Scott Rudin will also act as a producer for the project. “The book tells the story of a fox who uses its wits and cunning to outfox three dimwitted farmers who tire of sharing their chickens with the fox and resort to a shock-and-awe offensive.” As the article explains, Fantastic Mr. Fox was in development at Revolution Studios in 2004. However, once Revolution collapsed, Fox Animation president Chris Meledandri sought the book’s rights.
