Created 11/29/2002 - 00:00
A CGI/live-action adaptation of GARFIELD is in the works at Fox, with Peter Hewitt (THUNDERPANTS, THE BORROWERS) attached to direct, according to DAILY VARIETY. Contingent on the negotiation of certain rights issues, the production will move forward with TOY STORY writers Joel Cohen and Alec Sokolow on board to pen the script. The property is licensed by Paws, Inc., the creative and marketing company founded in 1981 by GARFIELD cartoonist Jim Davis. Other Garfield projects are soon to come from Tremendous Entertainment, who recently acquired the international television rights to the animated series GARFIELD & FRIENDS, and plans to broadcast a newly produced GARFIELD 25th anniversary television special in June 2003.
