China-based Heshan Media is collaborating with India’s Krayon Studios to co-produce the 3D animated film, “Beijing Safari,” the socially-conscious sequel to the equally socially-conscious “Delhi Safari.” The sequel will be penned by Oscar-Nominated writer Tab Murphy and focus on water contamination. Daniel St Pierre, who has credits on “The Lion King” and “Aladdin” will direct, marking the fourth Indo-China joint production this year.
The film will be produced in English and Krayon is currently in talks to bring in a Hollywood voice cast for the English version, much like “Delhi Safari’s” Cary Elwes, Vanessa Williams, Christopher Lloyd, and Jason Alexander.
