British comedian Ricky Gervais will produce a $90 million (GBP50 million) Hollywood animated movie based on his children's book FLANIMALS.

The creator of GOLDEN GLOBE-winning seminal comedy The Office will be executive producer and provide the voice for one of the main characters.

Hollywood studio TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX snapped up the rights to the book in the hope they will be able to rival the success of hit animators Pixar.
