Williams brought the book to the company, and after Dreamworks bought the rights in 1995, the film was put into active development.

At one time it was thought that he lived with his parents and kept rotting fish in his bedroom. Chris Farleywas originally going to be the voice of Shrek, being able to record 80% to 90% of the character's dialogue (or what his brother Tom believes 95%) before his death.
