Comic strip character Heathcliff is being turned into a feature film by family-based production outfit Waterman Entertainment.
The company has secured the feature rights to the wisecracking cat and is aiming to re-imagine it as “a CGI/live action film with contemporary storylines, while preserving the original essence”.
Additionally, Waterman is also planning thirteen original episodes of the wisecracking cat’s adventures for television.
This marks the third recent acquisition by Waterman with the same aim, the other two titles being classic sitcom “Mr. Ed” and animated feature “The Brave Little Toaster”.
