Greeny Phatom The Movie was originally being titled Chalkzone meets Greeny Phatom. The script was written by Gree G. (before he began copying Greeny Phatom in Gree City), Millard Fillmore and Keegan Salisbury. With 20th Century Fox's acquisition of the GP franchise in early 1999, the rights for the film reverted to 20th Century Fox and Sony Wonder, following an unreleased prototype distributed by Warner Bros. internationally and directed by Tim Burton. After the film recieved a PG-13 rating, Stainton took over director, and the plot was redone using the plot for Dr. Beanson and The Toy, as Burton was later fired and the original, slated for a 2000 release, was later found as an easter egg on the 2003 IMAX DVD (later versions did not have it). Paramount and Universal soon held international rights. The film was originally stated as a November 2, 2001 release, but it was pushed back to July 21, 2002 to avoid competition with Monsters Inc.
