Tom and Jerry
Since Alvin and the Chipmunks found an audience at the box office why not Tom and Jerry? This is the exact question Warner Bros. has been pondering.
Tom and Jerry: The Movie
Warner Bros. has it in mind to create a film that combines a CG cat and mouse with a live action setting. You know, Just like Chipmunks.
The adaptation of the Hanna-Barbera property, Tom and Jerry, will provide an origin story that reveals how Tom and Jerry first meet and form their rivalry before getting lost in Chicago and reluctantly working together during an arduous journey home.
Scribe Eric Gravning has been picked up to pen the script.
Since Alvin and the Chipmunks earned a whopping $360 million at the box office -- easily besting its budget of $60 million -- don't start thinking that Tom and Jerry will be the last of the Hanna-Barbera adaptations. Fortunately for Warner Bros, they own the film rights to a good chunk of the Hanna-Barbera library.
