Comedian and author David Walliams has taken his literary skills to Hollywood, teaming up with film director Edgar Wright to co-write an animated movie.
A feature film which the close friends had a "great time" drumming up "crazy things" to write about, the comedian told CNBC.
"Edgar Wright and I have been friends for a long time. We had a great time writing this movie," Walliams told CNBC's Tania Bryer.
In November 2015, Wright—known for directing the "Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World"—confirmed that he would be directing his first animated movie, and also co-write it with Walliams.
When it comes to what the DreamWorks Animation production will be about, the studio confirmed it would be centered on "the concept of shadows". Specific release dates and casting details have yet to be officially announced.
