'Shrek 3' & 4 Already in the Works'
Jeffrey Katzenberg has disclosed that work on 'Shrek 3' began nine months ago and that work on 'Shrek 4' began three months ago. Katzenberg made the disclosure during an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald as he arrived in the Australian city for the local premiere of 'Shrek 2'. "We have two more chapters to tell. Not unlike Peter Jackson did with 'The Lord of the Rings'. The difference is they did have the guts to make all three of them back-to-back-to-back," he said, noting that in the case of the 'Shrek' films, 13 years will have passed from the time the original began production until the fourth film is released in 2009.
