'Dora the Explorer' Movie in the Works With Nick Stoller (Exclusive)
Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller are producing.
Michael Bay to Produce Dora the Explorer Movie
In what reads more like an Animation Farce headline, Michael Bay really is in talks to produce a live-action adaptation of the beloved Nick Jr. series for Paramount’s Paramount Players division.
Nick Stoller (The Muppets, Storks, Neighbors) is working on the script, which is said to follow a teenage Dora who moves to “the city” to live with her cousin Diego. No news on the whereabouts of Swiper or Boots, but I am sure Backpack will come in handy for Dora’s move. The film is currently looking for a 2019 release date.
While this film has no plans for animation, Paramount has many animated features in the works already: Amusement Park (2018), Spongebob Squarepants 3 (2019), The Loud House (2020), Nicktoons (2020), Luck (2020), Split (2021) and a live-action/animation hybrid Sonic the Hedgehog film with set release date.
