Tom Wheeler Pens “Puss in Boots”

Tom Wheeler will pen the “Shrek” feature film spinoff “Puss in Boots” for DreamWorks Animation says The Hollywood Reporter.

The feline assassin/swordsman Puss in Boots character, originally hired to knock off the grumpy green ogre, debuted in “Shrek 2” and became part of Shrek’s entourage. Antonio Banderas voiced the character in the second, third and upcoming fourth “Shrek” feature.

“Shrek the Third” co-director/co-writer Chris Miller penned an earlier draft of the “Puss” screenplay. Michelle Raimo is producing.
