Kung Fu Panda Co-Director Helming We3

Kung Fu Panda co-director John Stevenson is reportedly attached to helm We3, based on the Vertigo mini-series of the same name.

Written by Grant Morrison, who adapted his own source material, the action-packed, hyper-violent and heartbreaking story focuses on three test animals – a dog, a cat and a rabbit – who are infused into prototype combat suits equipped with various weaponry. Thanks to chips in their skulls, they’re allowed to speak. This trio breaks free and We3 tells of their perilous return home.

Also on board for the project is Transformers producer Don Murphy, who revealed plans to make the film in live action, rather than straight animation: “It’s not going to be cutesy. There’s killer rabbits and stuff. We’re in the process right now of trying to figure out where we’re going to make it.”
