Update On Phil Collins Next Walt Disney Project

Coming Soon!, a website dedicated to forthcoming theatrical releases, reported a brief update on Phil Collins' next soundtrack project for Walt Disney (known under the working titles of Brother Bear and Bears). 

Collins, as already reported, is not only writing the songs but co-writing the score, a first for him, on the 2004 feature that takes place at the end of the Ice Age in Alaska, with action centering on Inuit Indians.
"I thought Tarzan would be harder than it was," noted Phil, "This one is more the nightmare I had originally anticipated." The fact that it's an original story rather than an adaptation "in itself creates hiccups and rewriting situations," says Phil, who also cautions that the film might even get a title change. "But it's coming along."
