DreamWorks Animation to make ‘Croods 2’

DreamWorks Animation is moving ahead with a sequel to its prehistoric family comedy “The Croods,” according to a spokeswoman at the Glendale studio.

Writers-directors Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders will return for the second installment, which does not yet have a release date.

“The Croods,” which featured the voices of Nicolas Cage and Emma Stone as a cave-dwelling father and daughter navigating familial and tectonic shifts, garnered modest praise from critics, but received a Cinemascore of A from audiences and went on to gross a strong $142 million domestically after its release March 22.

Worldwide, the film looks poised to cross the $400-million mark next weekend, and it has yet to open in several key territories, including China.

The studio is in negotiations with voice talent for the sequel, the spokeswoman said.
