Wes Anderson Says Fantastic Mr. Fox Spin-Off Comic Possible
11.16.09 by REELZ
Midway through Wes Anderson's Fanatstic Mr. Fox, the title character's son is shown reading a comic book called White Cape. Anderson included the comic simply as an interesting explanation for why the young fox wears a white cape throughout most of the movie. Apparently, the 40-year-old director is now considering developing White Cape into a full-fledged spin-off comic.
Anderson talked about this possibility in an interview with MTV, in which he discussed the development of the comic.
It was our chief storyboard artist.... He became the artist that does White Cape, and we sort of made this comic-book series.... We didn't ever figure out any full stories, but in fact he wants to do some White Cape comics now, so maybe we will be developing that property.
Well, it's good to hear that Anderson has good feelings about the movie and is on good terms with someone from the project. Because we were nervous after hearing the stories about how Anderson was at odds with the production team. Either way, we're excited about Fantastic Mr. Fox, which opens in wide release next Friday.
