A fifth sequel to the Dreamworks animation hit Shrek has been promised for a while but finally a script has been written and it promises to reinvent the series.
Former Saturday Night Live writer Michael McCullers was hired to write the script and has given us clues as to what we can expect from the latest installment.
McCullers told Cinemablend:
“I finished that script which I really, really, really love. It’s really personal to me. It’s got a pretty big reinvention behind it that I guess I can’t really reveal, but since DreamWorks was sold to Universal in that time for over $3 billion, I imagine they’re particularly interested in it stepping up and actually figuring out the future of the franchise in that way on the corporate level. Reinvention was sort of called for. There [have] been four movies and a lot of material, so the characters are pretty beloved and they’re great characters, but you also have to think of a pretty new take at that point.”
