DreamWorks Animation announced that it is fast-tracking Monkeys of Bollywood, a Bollywood-style animated musical adventure set in modern-day Mumbai and inspired by "The Ramayana," an Indian epic.

Executive producer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Prince of Egypt, Enchanted), executive producer and composer A.R. Rahman (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire, Bombay Dreams), and writers Gurinder Chadha and Paul Berges (Bride & Prejudice, Bend It Like Beckham) will collaborate on the feature project.

"To reunite with Stephen Schwartz and work with such a celebrated team of artists on DreamWorks Animation's first-ever CG animated feature musical project is incredibly exciting," says Bill Damaschke, chief creative officer at DreamWorks Animation. "Together we will create a movie that is full of magic, fantasy, adventure, comedy and emotion in which inspiring songs and dances will delight audiences everywhere."
