Josh Cooley to Co-Direct Toy Story 4 with John Lasseter

1082076400

Pixar has announced that Josh Cooley, head of story on their summer release Inside Out, will co-direct the hotly-anticipated Toy Story 4 with original director and company CCO John Lasseter.

“To be co-director on ‘Toy Story 4’ with John, who brought the ‘Toy Story’ characters to the screen 20 years ago, is a dream come true,” Cooley told Variety. “When I first saw ‘Toy Story’ I was amazed by the groundbreaking computer-generated animation. But it was the strong storytelling that kept me coming back. ‘Toy Story 4’ will continue that tradition and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it!”

The script for Toy Story 4 will be provided by actors-turned-screenwriters Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, who previously penned and starred in Celeste and Jesse Forever. They’re working from a story idea by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich. Pixar’s Galyn Susman will produce.

Although officially unconfirmed at this time, it’s just about a certainty that Toy Story 4 will feature the return of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack and the rest of the hit franchise’s diverse voice talent. It will be released on June 16, 2017.

On Saturday, February 22, 2014, come to Gallery 1988 (West) between 8-10 PM for the return of Josh Cooley. To celebrate the new book, Movies R Fun! A Collection of Cinematic Classics For The Pre-(Film) School Cinephile, G1988 will be the 1st place you can purchase Cooley’s movie-inspired children’s book and get tons of prints (and even a few originals), all limited edition. The artist will be on hand to sign the book.

The 48 page hardcover cleverly translates memorable scenes from classic contemporary films into the format of an “inappropriate Golden Book.”

The idea for the book originated when Josh’s daughter was born and he realized it would be at least 17 years before he could share his favorite films with her. His tongue-in-cheek solution was a child’s book that could introduce some of the most memorable moments of those films

Movies R Fun! A Collection of Cinematic Classics for the Pre- (Film) School Cinephile By Josh Cooley

51gSSxJ4Z5L

Movies R Fun! ($12.95) the new book by Pixar animator Josh Cooley. It cleverly translates memorable scenes from classic contemporary films into the format of an “inappropriate Golden Book.”

 The idea for the book originated when Josh’s daughter was born and he realized it would be at least 17 years before he could share his favorite films with her. His tongue-in-cheek solution was a child’s book that could introduce some of the most memorable moments of those films

Josh self-published a modest run of the book and took it to San Diego Comic-Con where it sold out quickly and caught the eye of BoingBoing, TheMillions, Salon, and Reddit, to name a few.

Now, Chronicle Books publishes an updated version with additional films represented. Of course, this book is on our Adult list, not our children’s list.  Josh’s daughter still has to wait a few years before she can read it.

The 48 page hardcover will be released on February 25, 2014.

The book will have two launch events:

February 22, 2014: Gallery1988, 7308 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046

March 1, 2013: Trickster Gallery, 2631 Ashby Ave., Berkeley, CA
