"20th Century Fox Studios Animation has plunked down some money for WAINSCOTT WEASEL, a children's book character created by Tor Seidler. Blue Sky Studios, the people behind ICE AGE and the upcoming ROBOTS computer-generated films, will produce the WEASEL movie. ICE AGE director Chris Judge is the man most likely to helm the new movie (after he finishes work on ROBOTS...and oh yeah, ICE AGE 2.)
The tour-de-force has Wainscott trying to save his scaly pals in a nearby pond from drought and a osprey that wants to eat them for dinner. Wainscott's love interest, a good-looking bass lass named named Bridget, also lives in said pond. Finally: interspecies romance as a sub-plot! "
