Andrew Adamson Tackling Beasts of Burden

The Dark Horse Comics title "Beasts of Burden" is being turned into a movie by Shrek and "The Chronicles of Narnia" director Andrew Adamson, as well as Strange Weather Films partner Aron Warner and Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.

Adamson is producing the CG-animated feature based on the comic created by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson, which was published as a four-issue mini-series in 2009. The series and movie is "set in a community called Burden Hill where a series of supernatural events occur, causing a gang of dogs (and one cat) to team up in order to keep their owners and the town's residents safe."

Dark Horse Entertainment's Keith Goldberg is executive producing with Strange Weather's Jeff Fierson co-producing.
