    Default New SpongeBob Squarepants Movie to hit the big screen in 2014

    Source: Paramount to Release 'SpongeBob' Movie in Late 2014 - The Hollywood Reporter

    NEW YORK - Viacom's Paramount Pictures will release a SpongeBob SquarePants movie in late 2014 as it looks to kick its animation output into a higher gear, Viacom president and CEO Philippe Dauman said Tuesday.

    Paramount Plots Next Animated Pic with Alien Comic Adaptation 'New Kid' (Exclusive)
    "We will be releasing a SpongeBob movie at the end of 2014, which will serve to start off or be one of our films that starts off our new animation effort," he told a Deutsche Bank media and telecom investor conference in Palm Beach, Fla. His appearance was webcast.
    Paramount announced the formation of its new animation unit last July with a target of one release starting in 2014. It has previously not mentioned a specific project. However, Paramount picked up rights to Penny Arcade's science fiction comic New Kid in June and is planning an adaptation of it. The studio tapped The Book of Eli writer Gary Whitta to pen the script and Mary Parent and Cale Boyter are producing via their Paramount-based Disruption Entertainment.
    Paramount has distributed animation fare from Jeffrey Katzenberg's DreamWorks Animation, but that deal is coming to an end at the close of this year. Dauman has repeatedly said that his company's studio would be fine without DWA, which has also weighed its options, including self-distributing its movies. But Dauman has not directly ruled out a potential renewal of the DWA deal.
    Viacom released a SpongeBob film several years ago, but back then, Nickelodeon did not have as much of a presence around the world, Dauman said Tuesday in touting the outlook for the new feature.
    The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie hit the silver screen late in 2004 and grossed $85.4 million domestically and $54.7 million abroad, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com. The film saw SpongeBob take leave from the town of Bikini Bottom to track down King Neptune's stolen crown.
    Paramount did not provide additional deals on the new SpongeBob film.
    Dauman also once again said that the Paramount animation productions will be a new opportunity for his company as they will each cost less than $100 million, and the animation unit will be only 30 to 40 people strong, allowing for good financial returns. Thanks to modern technology, the films still look "great" despite the lower cost, he said. He also lauded his studio team for winning an animation Oscar for Rango, the studio's first fully-owned CGI effort. "We're very proud of that," he said.
    What do you think? Are you guys exited about this?

    I'm not really that excited... The first Spongebob Movie was meant to be the end of the series, but it got picked up by someone else at the last minute. As a lifelong fan of the show, I can say that it hasn't been nearly as good as it was pre-movie. So to me, this probably won't be that great.

    It's pretty obvious that it'll be inferior to the first film due to the current state the series is undergoing in the following seasons.

    No. The last movie is where the series should have died forever. It just went all downhill after that.

    The first movie will always be the end of the series in my heart, as far as I'm concerned.

    I really hate to say it, but I'm not gonna get my hopes up on this.

    Late 2014? So this could be like a tenth anniversary celebration of the last film?

    Maybe it's a final end to the series. But that's just vague speculation. I won't seriously believe it for the time being.

    No. It's actually been scientifically proven that after the 4th Season of the show and the movie, that the new episodes kill brain cells. And I have to admit, it's no longer humorous. It's just absurdly inane.

    I have no hopes, as the new episodes are easily comparable to crap. No hopes for Movie 2014.
    Why are you looking here? There is nothing here.

    My only reaction when asked this question:
    "Do you think SS 2014 will be a big hit?"

    My Reaction:
    It's in this spoiler:

    This makes me sad. I loved the first three seasons and the original movie, but then it went down a steep hill. I'm actually scared to think about this movie.

    I think the first movie should've been the end of the series. Unless they pull off something as face-meltingly awesome as the goofy goober at the end of the first movie, I don't think it'll be that great.

    I'd tune in out of curiousity (read: bile fascination) just to see how the writers who work on the show now (assuming they'll have a big role in this) handle it, because I honestly can't picture it be anything more than a cringe-worthy train wreck. And ya just can't look away!

    Would be nice if Mr. Hillenburg were called back in since it's supposedly an anniversary thing, but there you go.
