Genndy Tartakovsky to direct an R-rated animated comedy for Sony

The great director Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack, Hotel Transylvania), has signed a new contract with Sony Pictures Animation for 2 new animated movies.
His new movie, Hotel Transylvania 3 - Summer Vacation, has crossed $100 million at the USA box office and over $220 million in the global box office in only few days, so pushed Sony to make a new deal for new and amazing projects.

Don't worry, we're not talking about Hotel Transylvania sequels, but two brand new movie: the first titled Fixed, an R-rated comedy and the second titled Black Knight, an adventure/fantasy movie.

"I'm very excited to start this next adventure with my Sony family," Tartakovsky told Deadline Hollywood. "With their trust and support we are going to do something unique and different, and push animation to the next level."

"Genndy is one of the most singular voices in animation today and we are overjoyed to have him develop his next original features at Sony Pictures Animation, where he began his theatrical career nearly a decade ago," said Kristine Belson, president of Sony Pictures Animation. "His imagination and talent have no boundaries, which will be made abundantly clear by the two wildly different movies he'll be directing next."

The studios is always looking for a smart way to distinguish itself from the rest of the animation industry, producing something fresh and original which isn't targeted to the kiddie crowd. In 2016 Sony Pictures Animation produced Sausage Party, an R-rated animated film with entusiastic critics (but animated from a third part studios) created with $19 million budget and a global box office of $140 million.

In Christmas season Sony Pictures Animation will release Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse, the first super-heroes/action animated movies created with a new design and a new look.
