What Happened to 1906?

1906 Brad Bird News

As I pointed out in my last article about Brad Bird’s future live-action project, it’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything new about the epic, disaster, love story set in San Francisco.

This begs the question, whatever happened to 1906? Jim Hill speculates on the answer.

With an ambitious script, a need for a huge budget and our tough economic times, 1906 is a hard sell. All that, combined with having to please three studios (Warner Bros., Disney and Pixar) has Brad Bird in a pinch. The article enlightens us on what exactly is taking this movie so long to start official production and compares it to Titanic. That’s where the problem comes in, studios don’t have the safety at these times for a titanic budget, which is required for a film of this scale.

Read the full article over here, it’s even got a little tidbit about a prospective sequel to a movie about a certain family of super heroes…
