In what could be termed as good news for all the cartoon lovers, the Tom and Jerry movie will begin filming this summer after being officially announced last year. Earlier in October last year, it was declared that Warner Bros. was developing a live-action/animated hybrid Tom and Jerry movie.
According to media reports, the movie will be directed by Tim Story and the filming will begin sometime this Summer in Warner Bros. Studio Leavesden, England.
Bryan Schulz, Cornelius Uliano, and Eric Gravning are on board for the animated movie, as per the reports.
“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,” as per the synopsis for the story that has been released.
Like the original version, the animated movie won’t be casting any voice actors for the role of Tom and Jerry.
However, the Tom and Jerry movie does not have an assigned release date yet.
Tom and Jerry is an American comedy slapstick cartoon series created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. It centers on a rivalry between the title characters Tom, a cat, and Jerry, a mouse.
