The Croods sequel in the works

the-croods-movieDreamWorks Animation will move forward with a sequel to The Croods, which is out in theaters now. The film has helped put the studio back on track after Rise of the Guardians underperformed at the box office last year. Launching a new franchise based on the caveman family should certainly improve the prospects for DreamWorks and adds to the studios ever-growing slate.

The Croods has made $144 million domestically and $242 million worldwide so far, and these numbers continue to climb. With this in mind it should come as no surprise that we will be seeing another Croods movie considering that DreamWorks Animation. The Croods 2 will mark the fifth sequel or spinoff that DreamWorks has in production, joining How to Train Your Dragon 2 and 3, Kung Fu Panda 3 and The Penguins of Madagascar.

The writers/directors of the first film, Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders, are back on board for the next installment and DreamWorks is working on getting the film’s voice talent, including; Nic Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds back as well.
