Oscar-nominated director John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda
) is set to helm animated adventure comedy Noah's Ark
, which was co-written by AiF member Glen Dolman and Philip LaZebnik.
Currently in pre-production, the story tells the story of Noah's Ark from the perspective of the animals, and their leader- an outcast aardvark named Gilbert.
Dolman wrote three-time AFI and Writers' Guild Award-winning telemovie, Hawke, for Network Ten, and adapted the 19th century novel The Mystery of a Hansom Cab for the ABC.
His Australian television credits include Always Greener, Silversun, Head Start and Li’l Horrors.
Dolman's career took him to the UK, where he wrote on long-running British cop drama The Bill, family comedy series My Spy Family, and was the Series Script Editor and writer on Ireland’s highest rating drama, The Clinic.
In the US, Dolman is known for writing comedy feature, How To Tell A Man By His Shoes for producers, Michelle Manning (The Breakfast Club) and Andrea Keir.
