It looks like Dreamworks Animation is ready to step up its game and add another CG creation to its mix of things to come in the next few years. Picking up the extremely entertaining Jack Black, Dreamworks is ready to give us a Kung Fu Panda.

Kung Fu Panda for Dreamworks

It would seem that after the success of Madagascar, Dreamworks Animation might have found their niche with animal comedies. According to Variety, Dreamworks will be transitioning their start-up phase with the help of a sequel to Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda.

Influenced by cartoonish live-action pics like Kung Fu Hustle, Kung Fu Panda will star Jack Black as the voice of a lazy panda prophesied to save the Valley of Peace.

The animation will be directed by John Stevenson and Mark Osborne. Melissa Cobb will produce from a screenplay by Dan Harmon and Rob SchrabRob Schrab.

Besides Madagascar 2 and Kung Fu Panda, Dreamworks Animation has already opened itself to a list of other projects to help fill the companies slate for 2009 and beyond. Among these projects are How to Train Your Dragon, Rex Havoc, It Came From Earth! and Route 66.

How to Train Your Dragon is based on the children's book by Cressida Cowell in which the son of a Viking chief must capture a dragon in order to be initiated into his tribe.

Rex Havoc, based on the classic horror comicbook, is about a monster hunter called upon to battle aliens who have disrupted cable TV service. Rex assembles a team of monsters to help including Ick!, Dr. Cockroach, the 50,000 Pound Woman and Insectosaurus.

It Came From Earth! is a reverse alien invasion story told from the perspective of Martians when human astronauts arrive.

Route 66 is the story of Mulligan, a giant golf ball statue on the side of legendary Route 66. When Betty, a giant blueberry who hovers above a produce stand on the other side of the street, is carted off one day, Mulligan steps down off his pedestal and sets off to find the love of his life.
