    Movie2k Movies – Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted Production Notes

    DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg confirmed in 2008 that there would be an additional sequel to Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. Katzenberg stated, “there is at least one more chapter. We ultimately want to see the characters make it back to New York.” At the Television Critics Association press tour, in January 2009, Katzenberg was asked if there will be a third film in the series. He replied, “Yes, we are making a Madagascar 3 now, and it will be out in the summer of 2012.”

    Thomas “Tom” McGrath co-directed (with Eric Darnell) the 2005 feature Madagascar, his film directing debut, and its sequel, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa in 2008. He has also worked as a voice actor on other DreamWorks animated features like Flushed Away in 2006 and Shrek the Third in 2007. He also stepped in on Flushed Away to help make improvements prior to its release.

    McGrath’s experience in both television and feature animation includes work as an animator on Ralph Bakshi’s film Cool World, storyboard artist and director for the popular series The Ren and Stimpy Show, animator on the Joe Pytka-directed Space Jam, and storyboard artist on the live-action film Cats & Dogs and worked as storyboard artist and concept artist/prop and set designer for How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

    McGrath worked on The Penguins of Madagascar, a Madagascar spin-off TV series, as the voice of Skipper, and directed the DreamWorks animated feature Megamind, released in November 2010.

    Bryan Lee Cranston is best known for his roles as Hal the father in the Fox situation comedy Malcolm in the Middle, and Walter White in the AMC drama series Breaking Bad, for which he won three consecutive Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series Emmy Awards. He is also known for his recurring role as Tim Whatley on Seinfeld.

    Jessica Chastain is known for her roles in the 2011 films The Help, The Debt, Take Shelter, and The Tree of Life.
