More than that, Verbinski went against the conventional approach of animation today — instead of recording actors working alone in the studio, he put his ensemble together on a soundstage with a 40-foot-long wooden bar, whiskey glasses and swinging doors. Verbinski sees a new frontier in animation where audacious outlaws may finally win. He said R-rated animation projects (such as David Fincher's discussed adaptation of "The Goon") may be pioneer projects to watch. The animation legacy of Ralph Bakshi and "Heavy Metal" may be a next frontier for Hollywood, the director saya. "You can tell so many stories. I think where it's going is very interesting if we let it be."
