One of the more charming, quirky, creative and heartwarming films to land this past year wasSafety Not Guaranteed. Being as I just used four adjectives that perfectly describe most Pixar films as well, it should come as welcome news the the screenwriter for Safety Not Guaranteed, Derek Connolly, is laying down words for a mystery upcoming Pixar film. Connolly is writing the script with Teddy Newton who directed the short Day & Night (above), which ran before Toy Story 3 and is also very awesome.
While information is not really forthcoming about the Connolly/Newton project, Connolly does say, "It’s totally different, the way they do things up here. You’re here everyday. You don’t go away for three months and come up with a script. You’re involved with a director and it’s very collaborative." That sounds like a plan for success to me.
