    Wallace and Gromit on the comeback trail

    LONDON, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Wallace and Gromit, the quirky plasticine stars of British cinema, are on the comeback trail.

    The film-making partnership of Aardman Animations Ltd and Hollywood's DreamWorks Animation SKG may have ended on Tuesday but Nick Park, creator of the animated pals, is busy at the drawing board creating a Wallace and Gromit sequel.

    "Wallace and Gromit are alive and kicking," Aardman spokesman Arthur Sheriff said on Wednesday. "There is a project on the table right now.

    "It could be television, it could be a feature film. That depends on how the storyline develops. It will go into production as soon as he has finished writing it."

    Fantastic! Ever since "Curse Of The Wererabbit" I've been wondering what was going on. I got hooked on them by watching the shorts on PBS, and I can't get enough. You should have seen my excitement when I went to go watch this at the Arclight in Hollywood and saw they had actual sets there! I nearly jumped out of my skin ... I am such a geek ... but I love W&G!

      The question lingers in my mind is who will pick this up for US distribution? Disney? The Weinsteins? Lionsgate?

      DreamWorks couldn't afford to eat a 100 million writeoff... But Wallace and Gromit are premier types of characters... The kind that Disney would could work with better than DreamWorks ever could.
