The Scotsman reports that Sir Sean Connery and Glasgow Animation are currently in talks to raise a further £3 million in hopes of turning his comeback animation project into a full-length film.
Connery will be providing the voice for the main character in the temporarily titled Sir Billi, an animation film from the minds of Sascha and Tessa Hartmann. It has been in development for over three years.
While originally planned to be a short film, ‘the Hartmanns and Connery say that international interest, together with the strength of the cast, has persuaded them to make a feature-length movie. It has yet to be decided whether to aim for cinema distribution or go straight to DVD.’
