I'd heard about it;I'm not sure there's much info about it other than a short Dreamworks news release and a few other snippets which add up to the following:
Jerry Seinfeld will write, produce and star in an animated comedy for DreamWorks Pictures, it was announced today by DreamWorks principal Jeffrey Katzenberg. The computer-animated feature, entitled "Bee Movie," will be set in an anthropomorphized world of bees.
In making the announcement, Katzenberg said, "Jerry Seinfeld is one of the most brilliant and unique comic minds of our time. It has been a dream of mine for over 10 years to be in business with him, and during that time, I have been willing to put myself in any number of potentially humiliating situations in order to demonstrate my unflagging appreciation of his talent.
By the time Seinfeld ran into Spielberg in the Hamptons last summer, the two started batting around animated movie ideas. Spielberg sparked to Seinfeld's idea to set a comedy in an anthropomorphized world of bees, a structured metropolis that resembles Manhattan. Katzenberg took over, and suddenly Seinfeld had an unorthodox but high-profile return vehicle.
Seinfeld's manager, Howard West, of Shapiro-West, commented, "Studios have been courting Jerry for years following the success of 'Seinfeld,' but it wasn't until he met with the creative minds at DreamWorks that Jerry decided to do a film. We are very excited to be working with the proven DreamWorks team on this new endeavor."
Jerry Seinfeld stated, "I have always been fascinated by bee society, the world's most harmoniously run organization, and now I finally am going to be in it. The enthusiasm of Jeffrey Katzenberg and Steven Spielberg for this idea is the main reason I decided to do it."
