The Tom and Jerry film is all set to start its filming by summer after having been announced last year. The CGI and live-action story details have now been revealed, and it seems like it is in line with the relationship between the cat and mouse duo that the fans have seen. The Fantastic Four director, Tim Story is now on board to direct this project after he finished work on the latest film in the Shaft franchise.
It has been expected that the Tom and Jerry film will shoot by this summer at Warner Bros. Studio in Leavesden. No production start date has been revealed as of now. However, we have a synopsis for this story:
“Jerry the mouse lives within the walls of a large, New England country home where he’s befriended the longtime owners, a loving elderly couple. Their unique, comedic friendship comes to an end after the elderly couple passes on and their house is put up for sale. When a young family moves in, Jerry’s determined to scare them away from taking over his home. The family quickly adopts a stray cat named Tom to help rid them of their pest problem. In an epic battle for the house, Tom & Jerry soon discover their growing adoration for the family and must work together to protect them from an outside threat. Through their teamwork, they both learn the ultimate value of family and friendship.”
Tom and Jerry are famously known for fighting each other in the original TV show, which will be a part of the all-new CGI and live-action movie. The characters had been created and also introduced in 1940 by Joseph Barbera and William Hanna and have starred in many cartoons since then.
Watching Tom and Jerry interact with the real-world surely does sound like a great idea, one that Warner Bros. is working very hard on, having the live-action and animation team working together.
