Lee UnkrichPixar’s Lee Unkrich, director of Toy Story 3 and co-director of Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo and Toy Story 2, has announced via his Twitter and Tumblr pages that he has begun work on a new film.

On 23 September, he Tweeted “Tomorrow is a big day that may determine the next four years of my life. Wish me luck”, presumably referring to a pitch at Pixar.

Yesterday, the director added “Today is day one on my next project. Every day I’ll post a new photo chronicling the journey”. Using the hashtag #UnkADay, Unkrich is now chronicling the journey from script to screen.

The first two photos have been a picture of his keyboard, and his standard lunch. From this we can only assume he is at the writing stage, and eating well. As he noted this morning, “I never promised these would be exciting, folks. You get what you pay for”.

Given the amount of time it takes to create a Pixar film from scratch, we could be waiting sometime before we see anything concrete from the film. We will definitely keep you posted on this.
