There’s nothing quite like seeing your friends succeed doing something they love. Which is why, over the weekend, we had cause to celebrate. Booktopia’s long-term friend and bestselling author, Aaron Blabey, had some amazing news. Aaron’s The Bad Guys – Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Shark, and Mr. Piranha – are going to be gracing the big screen soon!
You may have heard of Aaron and his many incredible creations – from Pig the Pug and Thelma the Unicorn to Piranhas Don’t Eat Bananas and, of course, The Bad Guys. There’s just something about Aaron’s humour that has stuck with us (and his many national and international fans) over the years.
The Bad Guys revolves around four ‘bad’ guys who might sound bad, look bad and even smell bad… but all they want is to be good! If you and your kids haven’t yet read this hilarious series, get going now because by the time the movie comes out, they’ll be itching for front-row seats, lots of popcorn and laugh-out-loud fun.
DreamWorks Animation has announced The Bad Guys animated film is in development with screenwriter Etan Cohen (of Tropic Thunder, Madagascar 2 and Men in Black 3) working on the film, and Aaron Blabey one of the executive producers.
No word yet on when the movie will be released, but you won’t have to wait long to find out what the bad guys get up to next… the next instalment – The Bad Guys Episode 7: Do-you-think-he-saurus?! is due out in May.
