Sorry to any Venue readers who may be expecting the 'Chicken Run' trailer. As with the cinema trailers, you'll have to wait until the new year.

Chicken Run Production Update

We are now deep into production of our first feature film - CHICKEN RUN. The film is being co-directed by Peter Lord and Nick Park and produced at Aardman's studios in Bristol, UK.

An animated adventure comedy, CHICKEN RUN is the story of a group of chickens who make a desperate bid for freedom before they can be fried, filleted or fricasseed. Leading the flock are a British chicken named Ginger and an all-American rooster named Rocky. Together they prove that chickens are anything but, as they engage in a daring and spectacular escape.

The cast will feature the voices of Mel Gibson, Julia Sawalha, Imelda Staunton, Jane Horrocks, Miranda Richardson and more. The screenplay, by Karey Kirkpatrick and Jack Rosenthal, is based on an original story by Nick Park and Peter Lord.

DreamWorks will distribute the film in the United States and in most international territories outside Europe. Pathe will distribute the film in Europe.

The film will be released on late June 2000 in UK and US.
