Director Jimmy Hayward (who helmed Horton Hears a Who! and Jonah Hex) is working on Free Birds, an upcoming animated movie about time-traveling turkeys:
“After being pardoned by the president, the turkey Reggie lives a comfortable life at Camp David, enjoying pizza and telenovelas. On the other hand, Jack is the president and the only member of Turkeys Liberation Front. After initial rivalry, they team up and hijack a time machine in a government lab and travel back in time to the first Thanksgiving to prevent turkeys from becoming traditional holiday meal.”
Will those two time-traveling and scheming turkeys become our new overlords? Or are they going to end up roasted?
The release date of Free Birds is set for November 1, 2013.
