    Flanimals, the four-volume children's book series written by comic Ricky Gervais, will be turned into an animated 3-D feature film. Universal's Illumination Entertainment, which is the studio's family and animated arm, is creating the film.

    Gervais will voice the lead character, while The Simpsons scribe Matt Selman will write the Flanimals script. The book series revolves around 50 species of hideous, yet likeable creatures. Gervais' character is a chunky purple gnome who embarks on a mission to change the world. Gervais will also executive produce the film.
