MEET THE PRODUCTION CREW

Joining the two legends in the production are other pacesetting movie makers, as reported by The Hollywood Reporters.

Notable names like Eric Rhone and Michael Elliot are among the brains behind this budding blockbuster, with the latter taking the scripting credits while Eric was revealed as one of the producers, under the auspices of A Bird and A Bear Entertainment.

Notably, Eric Rhone was also a co-producer of the original film, along with Cedric, Wendy Park, Andrew Sugerman, and Todd Jones, among others, making him no stranger to the movie settings.
