I’ve got a soft spot for cute, pet-like animated characters so when news first broke that DreamWorks Animation was making a movie about a ghost who needs to attend ghost school in order to become a better scarer, I was hooked.  However, that was a few years ago and since, the narrative and title of Boo U has changed.

Now we’ve got B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations on the way and it tells the story of a pair of ghosts who go to work for the B.O.O., an organization dedicated to protecting humans from evil spirits.  The scenario still sounds fun and also has Seth RogenMelissa McCarthyRashida JonesOctavia Spencer, Matt Bomer and Bill Murray leading the voice cast, but the very first look at the characters just surfaced and it’s not really what I was hoping for.  Hit the jump to check it out.  B.O.O. is scheduled for a June 5, 2015 release.

At this point, Seth Rogen is a bona fide voice actor: he’s been the pipes behind animated characters in Shrek the Third, The Spiderwick Chronicles, Horton Hears a Who, Kung Fu Panda, Monsters vs. Aliens, and the upcoming Simon Pegg/Nick Frost comedy Paul.  Now  DreamWorks Animation has signed Rogen to voice the lead ghost in Boo U.  According to Heat Vision, “the comic story centers on a ghost who must return to ghost school to learn how to be a better spook.”  Tony Leondis (Igor) is on board as director.

Rogen will next be seen in live-action form in the Michel Gondry’s 3D The Green Hornet (January 14, 2011).  His gruff voice can soon be heard again in the aforementioned Paul (March 18, 2011) and Kung Fu Panda 2 (May 26, 2011).

New Details on Upcoming DreamWorks Animation Films TRUCKERS and BOO U

In May of last year, DreamWorks Animation announced their release schedule through 2012.  Among the original films scheduled were the caveman comedy The Croods, Truckers, and “Super Secret Ghost Project”.  Today, the magazine License Global reports that “Super Secret Ghost Project” is officially titled Boo U.  Based on the title, I think it’s safe to assume that it’s about an educational institution for ghosts, the little girl from Monster’s, Inc., or girlfriends and boyfriends.

License Global also reports that Truckers is based on Terry Pratchett’s “The Bromeliad Trilogy”.  Per Wikipedia, “The trilogy tells the story of the Nomes, a race of tiny people from another world who now live hidden among humans. Through the books they struggle to survive in the world and, once they learn of their history from an artifact known as “The Thing”, make plans to return home.“  Neither Truckers or Boo U currently has a release date.
