Dammit! Another one of my childhood cartoons is going to be uploaded on to a computer and raped by Hollywood! Those Bastards. This is non-non-non-non-NON-Heinous! Warner Bros. of all studios is going to be the one to create this new family franchise. The trades are saying that they want to create their own 'Alvin and the Chipmunk' franchise.Warner Bros has done this once before with with 'Scooby-Doo' which sucked but it made a helluva lot of money. Trades report: Plans are to bring the constantly warring cat and mouse to life as CG characters that run around in live-action settings.Studio-based Dan Lin, currently producing the upcoming "Sherlock Holmes" and exec producer on "Terminator: Salvation," will adapt the classic Hanna-Barbera property as 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. Eric Gravning is penning the script. Scribe wrote "B-Minor," which has Ron Howard attached to helm at Universal; "Mr. Burnout," which is set up at Participant Prods.; as well as "Class Act" at Walden Media, with Halle Berry aboard to star.
There is no way they will keep the classicness of Tom & Jerry alive. I seriously doubt it will be as violent, sadistic, and politically incorrect as the cartoon, and I can see them possibly giving the famous cat and mouse voices other than there screams of pain. Since they are remaking all these classic cartoons I wounder if Disney will one day decide to develop a 'Duck Tales', 'Gummie Bears', 'Tale Spin', or Gargoyles CGI/live action movie? Gargoyles could be pretty freaking cool though.
