Sick of remakes? Well, then you're in luck: Two competing original movies featuring the Easter Bunny are in development, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sony Animation is pre-emptively picking up Hip Hop, in which the Easter Bunny decides to retire and hides out as a pet with a suburban family, turning their lives upside down. The tone is being described as along the lines of Alvin and the Chipmunks and The Santa Clause.

At the same time, Illumination Entertainment purchased I Hop to act as its first live-action picture. In it, the Easter Bunny is hit by a car driven by a slacker. When the bunny can't hop because his leg is broken, the driver must train to take over the job and save Easter.

Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio wrote the script; they previously wrote Despicable Me, Illumination's animated project being voiced by Steve Carell, Jason Segel and Kristen Wiig.
