The Safety Not Guaranteed writing and directing duo of Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow have already lined up a remake of Flight of the Navigator at Disney, but the screenwriting half has already been spending some time with one of the Mouse House's most treasured banners. Variety recently did a profile on Connolly and revealed that he's writing some sot of mystery project for Pixar Animation with Teddy Newton, the director of the stellar short Day & Night, attached to direct the film. In fact, Connolly has been working on the film almost this entire year after Safety Not Guaranteed premiered at Sundance in January.

As expected, the story is under wraps and we don't even have a title, but Connolly is still hard at work. The writer commented on the Pixar experience, "It's totally different, the way they do things up here. You're here everyday. You don't go away for three months and come up with a script. You're involved with a director and it's very collaborative." Thankfully, Pixar told him exactly what any filmmaker trying to make a family film should hear and that's ""not to dumb it down or treat animation like it's for kids." Connolly moved up to Pixar's home in Emeryville, California shortly after Sundance and it sounds like he'll be there for a little while longer. Hopefully we'll get some real details on this new Pixar movie very soon.
