Chloe Grace Moretz Set to Star in TOM AND JERRY Live-Action Animated Hybrid Movie
Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Greta) is in final negotiations to be attached to the live-action animation hybrid Tom and Jerry movie that’s in the works over at Warner Bros. This is the first bit of casting news that we have gotten, but it’s a pretty good name for the film to work with. The movie will be directed by Tim Story (Taxi, Ride Along), and will be an origin story of sorts based on the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons that will reveal how Tom and Jerry first met, and how and why they formed their rivalry.
Here’s what Collider had to say about Moretz’s character:
Moretz is poised to play Kayla, a new employee at a posh hotel where Jerry takes up residence, threatening to ruin a glamorous wedding. She hires a broke alley cat named Tom to come in and get rid of Jerry, which proves to be easier said than done. That may be for the best, as the duo will likely need each other to defeat Kayla’s villainous boss, who isn’t a big fan of either one.
I am not sure that this movie is one that anyone asked for or really needs, but hopefully it will be funny because my kids will want to watch it. Was Tom and Jerry your favorite cartoon as a kid? Do you have faith in this reboot?
The Tom and Jerry movie is in pre-production and is expected to hit theaters on April 16, 2021.
