Sony Pictures Animation will team up with Platinum Entertainment for an unnamed toon, Variety reports:

Platinum — which controls a cache of comicbook characters that it adapts, produces and licenses for all forms of media — is the company that brought “Men in Black” into the studio fold.

“We’re looking forward to working with (Platinum CEO Scott Rosenberg) and Platinum to develop a feature from their library of stories and (5,600) characters,” said Bob Osher, president of Sony Pictures Digital Prods.


  1. One feature? Out of 5,600 features, Sony picks only ONE option? Not sure what I have been seeing from Platinum warrents any sustainable cash flow. If you have 5,600 properties and only a handful are being optioned, what does that say about the quality of the inventory of characters they own?

    If you look at PDOS quarterly financials, this company is so far in the red I think we are seeing too little too late.
