Fox Developing A “Marmaduke” Feature

Tom Dey is set to direct a big screen adaptation of classic comic strip “Marmaduke” for 20th Century Fox says The Hollywood Reporter.

The stories about a mischievous Great Dane who lives with the Winslow family began in 1954 and appeared in several animated episodes of “Heathcliff” and “Garfield and Friends.”

As the project is in the early stages of development, there’s no word as to whether the titular mutt will be live-action or animated.
