"Rango" will be produced by Verbinski's Blind Wink Prods., Graham King and John Carls, reports Variety.
Par-based Nickelodeon Films is expected to be involved as well.
Rango aims to use cutting-edge animation techniques that "will allow us to capture and translate every aspect of Johnny's performance, using it to drive the computer-generated character in a way that has yet to be seen in an animated feature," Verbinski said.
