Pixar Hands Film to Safety Not Guaranteed Writer and Day & Night Director


Pixar, already stacked with a schedule equal parts mysterious and exciting, has added another project from Pixar first-timer Derek Connolly, the screenwriter behind the Mark Duplass/Aubrey Plaza indie Safety Not Guaranteed. "You’re here everyday. You don’t go away for three months and come up with a script," Connolly says of Pixar. "You’re involved with a director and it’s very collaborative." Directing the untitled project will be Pixar's Teddy Newton, who got an Oscar nomination for his 2010 short Day & Night but has yet to tackle a feature.
