Bud Luckey directing a future film?

Postby pixarfan9099 » Sat May 15, 2010 2:38 am

This is from Wikipedia, so it may not be true:
Luckey is widely rumored to have an original film concept in development for Disney-Pixar with former Sesame Street collaborator Don Hadley. The film is further rumored to be planned for co-direction by Luckey and Lasseter. The plot has not been released but is believed to have a western theme, similar to Luckey's short Boundin', with a projected release date of 2013.


How 'bout it? Good plan or no?

I love to see Mr. Luckey get his own film :) also, Boundin' is one of my favorites! So to see a movie like that, would be really cool :D

I'd love to see Bud Luckey direct a Pixar feature if it can make up for the disappointment of Gary Rydstrom's Newt.

Ooh... a Western! I always admire Pixar for their courage in trying out new things. The last time we had an animated Western was... oh, Home on the Range? Hopefully Pixar can do better (I'm a fan of Bud, and having done Boundin', I have total confidence if there's anyone that can pull this off, it's him). :)

Bud retired in 2006-2008, so it's not true. It would be cool, though.

Bud retired in 2006-2008

So what about 2009-2010? Wait, you mean he retired around that time, is it? My bad. Uh... as Sean Connery would say, "Never say never?" :D

Bud hasn't retired. He's being credited as a storyboard artist on TS3.

I just did a quick Google search, this is where I found out:

http://pixarblog.blogspot.com/2009/03/a ... -with.html

Q: I know about Alvy Ray Smith; what about Bud Luckey? Did he retire? Boundin' is one of my favorite shorts.

A: Bud is retired now from Pixar. He drove into the studio for an interview. From the moment he walked in, he was mobbed by former co-workers asking what he'd been up to and how he was doing. I definitely saw first-hand the affection and admiration that everybody at the company still has for Bud.

Hmm, I guess IMDb isn't always right.

That's a shame he's retired now, I would have loved to have seen a movie from him, especially as I think Boundin' is an absolute masterpiece. I could watch that short for hours on end.

I was gonna say, isnt he retired now? Still, it would have been interesting to see what he would have come up with.

This seems like a great concept. Too bad Bud has retired... perhaps someone else will rehelm this idea.

I don't think Pixar is planning to release a western/cowboy film anytime soon. Toy Story has a lot of elements of that genre (the Toy Story 3 opening alone is enough).

But maybe if they find a way of making this original and innovative, and they can always do that, it will be their next project.

It be interesting to see a Pixar western though. The genre's kind of been dead a while. And if they made a really good one, you'd probably see other people making them to cash off of their success. Of course, then the whoe spaceman thing would crush it again. :)
