Deadline.com reports that MGM will be making a CGI/live-action hybrid movie resurrecting the Pink Panther franchise, drawing influence from both the live-action Blake Edwards films and the Friz Freleng and David DePatie cartoons. Walter Mirisch, executive producer of the live-action films and the TV cartoons, is named as the producer alongside Blake Edwards’ widow Julie Andrews. David Silverman (The Simpsons Movie) is set to direct.
- Good to see MGM continuing its comeback as a major motion picture studio and I really can't wait until its CGI/live-action hybrid Pink Panther movie. After Skyfall and The Hobbit movies, it makes reasonable sense for MGM to capitalize on its comeback as a major motion picture studio. Perhaps, we might see a TV series reboot of Pink Panther, only time will tell, but the home of Leo the Lion needs to continue progressing- it's going in a promising direction.Just so you guys know, this isn't an April Fools joke, so please keep the gags out of this thread. Thank you.
