Back in 1921, " Kid " became the full-length directorial debut of Chaplin . Charlie also played the role of the kindhearted Tramp in the film, who took on an abandoned child. 90 years later, one of the greatest films of the silent film era has been listed on the National Register of Cultural and Historical Films of the United States.
The Kid will be co-led by Christian Wolkmann (Renaissance) and Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). British journalist and writer Boris Starling will assist the directors in the script for the cartoon.
The modern reinterpretation of the legendary silent film will be the second joint project of the companies Superprod , Bidibul and Big Beach . These studios are currently working on an animated film based on Jack London's adventure novel White Fang .
