Earlier last year in October, it was revealed that Warner Bros. was developing a live-action Tom and Jerry movie. Now, it looks like everything has fallen in place for the studio to go ahead with its production.
The movie, which will be a live-action/animated hybrid will be directed by Tim Story. According to a listings report from Production Weekly, filming will begin sometime this Summer in Warner Bros. Studio Leavesden, England.
Earlier, Dan Lin was also attached as an executive producer. But Pursue News has received word from his studio Rideback that he is no longer attached to the project.
Bryan Schulz, Cornelius Uliano and Eric Gravning are on board as shown on the listings.
A project note from the listings which seems to serve as the plot details for the Tom and Jerry movie suggests that this would be an origin story.
“Jerry the mouse lives within the walls of a large, New England country home where he’s befriended the longtime owners, a loving elderly couple. Their unique, comedic friendship comes to an end after the elderly couple passes on and their house is put up for sale. When a young family moves in, Jerry’s determined to scare them away from taking over his home. The family quickly adopts a stray cat named Tom to help rid them of their pest problem. In an epic battle for the house, Tom & Jerry soon discover their growing adoration for the family and must work together to protect them from an outside threat. Through their teamwork, they both learn the ultimate value of family and friendship.”
The original report from Variety had also stated that since Tom and Jerry don’t speak in the animated version have relied on physical comedy, the live-action movie would also do the same and won’t be casting any voice actors for the role of Tom and Jerry.
The Tom and Jerry movie does not have a release date assigned yet.
