"Kung Fu Panda" Sequel Gets Unlikely Ally 


Charlie Kaufman, the Oscar-winning writer who gave us "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Adaptation," and "Being John Malkovich" is entering a whole new realm -- the world of animation!

The Hollywood Reporter exclusively learned that Kauffman "is coming off of less than two weeks worth of work on DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom,” the sequel to the fun 2008 movie that had the voice talent of Jack Black, Angelina Jolie and Dustin Hoffman."

The writer polished the script and it's interesting to see how much of an impact his work will have on the final product. Kaufman is known for his existentialism bent, and if you think long and hard, "Kung Fu Panda" subscribes to the same notion -- the characters find meaning in their lives by living in the here and the now. Wow!
