Classic cartoon characters TOM AND JERRY are aiming to replicate the success of the Scooby-Doo film franchise by starring in a live-action movie remake.
The cat and mouse comedy duo became family favourites when they made their small screen debut in the 1940s, and an animated feature-length version, Tom and Jerry: The Movie, was released in 1992.
And now they're going one step further, with a live-action remake set to hit theatre screens.
Bosses are hoping the film will achieve similar success to the 2002 Scooby-Doo movie and the 2004 sequel, Monsters Unleashed, which grossed $457 million (GBP330 million) at the global box office.
The new film will centre on how Tom and Jerry met and their subsequent rivalry, according to Daily Variety.
