IMAGINE THAT

KAREY KIRKPATRICK (Director) has made a name for himself as the go-to writer of fantastical and family-friendly films with his keen sense of storytelling and smart, witty dialogue.

Kirkpatrick's first foray into directing, DreamWorks Animation's "Over the Hedge,” premiered as an Official Selection at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival. The film followed a raccoon who cons a close-knit group of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating. The film, co-directed with Tim Johnson, was released in May 2006 and has grossed over $330 million worldwide.

Kirkpatrick's next project will be directing "The Best a Man Can Get” based on John O'Farrell's novel The Best a Man Can Get: A Novel of Fatherhood and Its Discontents published in 2002 by Broadway Books. O'Farrell and Kirkpatrick will share screenwriting duties. Kirkpatrick will also produce, along with Kathleen Kennedy. Set in London, the film revolves around a commitment-phobic musician who leads a double life. In one life, he shares a bachelor pad with three pals, but in the other, he is also a married man and father of two small children. Kirkpatrick is also set to direct "Captain Abdul's Pirate School” for Nickelodeon Movies. Both films will be produced under Kirkpatrick's Blue Shirt Productions shingle through Nickelodeon/MTV.

Previously, Kirkpatrick wrote "James and the Giant Peach,” "Flakes,” "The Little Vampire,” "Chicken Run” (which was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2000), "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,” "Charlotte's Web,” "Over the Hedge” and "The Spiderwick Chronicles,” which he also produced. He contributed as a writer or story consultant on "The Road to El Dorado,” "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron” and "Madagascar.”

Originally from Louisiana, Kirkpatrick is an alum of the USC School of Cinematic Arts, where he won the Robert Riskin Screenwriting Award and the Jack Nicholson Screenwriting Award. After graduation, Kirkpatrick joined Disney Animation as a staff writer, where he began his career by co-writing the screenplay for "The Rescuers Down Under.”
