Tom and Jerry to get a (proper) movie

WAG has been mining classic WB toon properties from the Hanna-Barbera stable to strengthen its feature animation and hybrid movie slate, which has grown since its brick-out debut pic The LEGO Movie in 2013.

Next up, Warner Bros. also plans to bring Scooby-Doo back to the big screen as an animated film and has brought in Chris Columbus to serve as creative director. The aim is, reportedly, to shine as much of a spotlight on these titles as those under the DC Comics and Harry Potter brands receive, though time will tell if modern audiences gravitate toward contemporary takes on these 20th century shows.

Of course, the new Tom and Jerry film won't be the cat and mouse's first feature - with Tom And Jerry: The Movie released in 1992, followed by a string of straight-to-video releases.

As a result, you can expect to see a hybrid live-action Tom and Jerry movie from Tim Story, and an animated Scooby-Doo from producer Chris Columbus.

Pippa Middleton Welcomes Her First Baby with Husband James Matthews

Story is now working on his Shaft sequel/reboot, so the film isn't expected to go into production until at least next summer - with a late 2020 release already pencilled in. The Harry Potter director's interest in the popular animated series about those "blasted, meddling kids and their dog" peaked while he was working on the Gremlins reboot, which he is producing. He'll work with Tony Cervone who directs from Kelly Fremon Craig's screenplay, adapted from Jack Donaldson and Derek Elliott's previous draft.
