A CG/Live-Action “Tom and Jerry”

Warner Bros. Pictures is set to give classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters “Tom and Jerry” the CG/live-action treatment says Variety.

Much like “Garfield” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks”, the eternally at odds cat and mouse from the original 114 animated MGM shorts will be CG creations interacting with a real world enviornment.

Producer Dan Lin (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Terminator Salvation”) and scribe Eric Gravning will adapt the property as an origin story that reveals how Tom and Jerry first meet and form their rivalry.

The pair soon get lost in Chicago and reluctantly working together during an arduous journey home.
