STX Entertainment‘s Uglydolls movie has hired Robert Rodriguez (Sin City)  as the director for the film. They also announced a release date of May 10, 2019 for the movie. A poster was recently unveiled at CinemaCon, which you can check out below!

Rodriguez has been a strong director of family films like The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D, Shorts and the Spy Kids franchise. Rodriguez is currently in post-production on Fox’s summer 2018 tentpole Alita: Battle Angel, an adaptation of the Japanese manga for producer/co-screenwriter James Cameron. He also has a big budget live-action Jonny Quest movie still in development.

Populated by satirical, playful, and off-kilter characters that go by names like Wage, Babo, Ice-Bat and Wedgehead, the “uglyverse” is a world in which the traditional definition of the word “ugly” is turned on its head, aiming to celebrate characters who are distinctive, special and different. Started in 2001 when Horvath signed a letter to Kim, his college sweetheart, with a drawing of a monster with unconventional proportions, the Uglydoll brand quickly grew into a universe of colorful and nuanced characters.

The Uglydolls movie will be produced by STX. Gigi Pritzker and OddLot will co-produce. David Horvath and Drew Matilsky will executive produce on behalf of Pretty Ugly LLC.
