Brad Bird’s 1906 Earthquake is Getting Smaller?

Last week Brad Bird revealed that he was still trying to crack the screenplay for his live-action debut 1906, which seemed baffling to us. In March 2008, our spies told us that Pixar was busy building virtual scale models of a period-era San Francisco and that Warner Bros had put a hold on all of the soundstages that were available on its Burbank lot. So what happened? How did the project get delayed? And what are the script issues exactly? Jim Hill claims that the economy and budget cuts have been sucking the life out of Bird’s big screen epic.

Brad Bird Updates 1906

6 February 2009 11:04 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We haven’t heard much lately about Brad Bird’s live-action debut, a big screen adaptation of James Dalessandro’s novel 1906.  Our friends at LatinoReview caught up with Bird at the premiere of Coraline, and was able to get an update.

“We’re looking at places to shoot it. The script I’m still working. it’s a really hard script to write. And mostly because there are so many interesting things going on in that place and that particular period of time that anytime you’re going towards something, you’re going away from 5 other cool things. So it’s been really hard for me to write. but I think it’s going to great. and we’ll see If they have the courage to make.”

Bird admitted that he already has actors interested in the project, but wouldn’t reveal names.
