“El Tigre” Creator Jorge Gutierrez Moves Into Features with “Book of Life”
By Amid Amidi
El Tigre co-creator Jorge R. Gutierrez is moving into feature film directing.
He continues the recent trend of TV artists transitioning into feature animation, following Genndy Tartakovsky’s Hotel Transylvania and Rich Moore’s Wreck-It Ralph.
Gutierrez’s CG feature, Book of Life, will be released on October 10, 2014, by Fox Animation Studios. Unlike Tartakovsky and Moore who took over the reins of existing studio projects, Gutierrez is working from an original idea he’s been developing on and off since 2001.
