The sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 Blockbuster is looking to bring Johnny Depp back on as well, but Burton will not be returning for the film, which Linda Woolverton is writing.
Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd will produce.
Bobin, who created HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords” with Bret McKenzie, last helmed Disney’s 2011 film “Muppets”, the sequel to which he recently wrapped on. He is also currently in development on New Line’s “Agent Zigzag”.
Bobin is repped by CAA.
