In a deal that’s apparently been in the works for years, Weird Al says that he’s working on several projects for Cartoon Network. Over on his blog, Yankovic explains how the deal came about:
“[T]he good folks at Cartoon Network decided that they liked me and wanted me to provide some content for them – series, features, animation, live-action… they were open to anything.”
Weird Al is currently working on his third draft of a feature-length, live-action movie for the network. It will mark the first time that Yankovic has directed a feature and he seems excited about it. “I’m very excited about [directing]. I’ve never shot an entire feature film, so this will be a big first for me.” He doesn’t say what the plot will be, but is quick to say that he won’t begin production until after his nationwide tour.
