Paramount Animation has given the green light to a combination live action/animated movie centered around monster trucks and to be directed by Chris Wedge [“Ice Age” and, more recently, “Epic”]. The film will have a $100 million budget could have a “Transformers”-style scenario as it becomes the first animated feature film focused on monster trucks [though Discovery Channel had a short-lived children’s television series entitled “Meteor and the Mighty Monster Trucks” that ran in 2006].

“Monster Trucks” is tentatively scheduled to begin production in 2014 for a possible Summer 2015 release.
