John Cleese, Kenan Thompson and More Join CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG

Clifford the Big Red Dog is getting quite the cast assembled. The latest round of announcements from THR include John Cleese, David Alan Grier, Sienna Guillory, Rosie Perez, Kenan Thompson, and Izaac Wang. None of the roles for the actors have been revealed, but they join Darby Camp who will play Emily Elizabeth and Jack Whitehall who is Uncle Casey.

The movie will see Emily (Big Little Lies’ Darby Camp), who is struggling to fit in at home and at school, discover a small red puppy who is destined to become her best friend. When Clifford magically undergoes one heck of a growth spurt and attracts the attention of a genetics company, Emily and her Uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) have to fight the forces of greed as they go on the run across New York City.

Clifford is being directed by Walt Becker with a script from two writing teams consisting of David Ronn and Jay Scherick as well as Stan Chervin and Annie Mumolo. The original books were written by Norman Bridwell.
