Tom and Jerry are ready to play cat and mouse once more.
Filmmaker Tim Story is in talks to direct a live-action hybrid Tom and Jerry movie for Warner Bros. Animation Group, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Tom and Jerry began life as a series of long-running shorts created by animation pioneers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera and first introduced in 1940. They centered on the exploits of house cat Tom and his never-ending battle with mouse Jerry. Seven of the shorts, released by MGM, won Oscars from 1943-53. The animated pair have remained in the pop culture consciousness over the years, first getting their own full-length theatrical film with 1993’s Tom and Jerry: The Movie.
