One day, the Animals woke up.
They started thinking.
They started talking.
They started taking revenge.

Now, a dog and his girl are trying to get away–out of New York City, and all the way to San Francisco, to the only person who might be able to protect and save her.

With such a recent announcement, no information regarding development has been released or possibly even established as of yet. We do know that AfterShock Media’s president Lee Kramer and CEO Jon Kramer will produce the feature and Legendary’s Jon Silk will oversee the project.
