"Heathcliff" Headed for the Big Screen

Posted: June 1st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Heathcliff" Headed for the Big ScreenSubmit Comment
Irascible orange housecat Heathcliff is headed to the big screen courtesy of a joint venture between family toon studio Magic Lantern Entertainment and rights holder FitzRoy Media.

The two companies have pacted to develop a range of properties, from direct-to-DVD toons to a potential live-action theatrical feature, around the character, updating the popular comic strip character for the 21st century.

Created by George Gately in 1973, Heathcliff remains in print today, written and drawn by Gately's nephew, Peter Gallagher.

The sarcastic cat previously starred in two, early-'80s animated shows; FitzRoy and Magic Lantern are re-evaluating Heathcliff's TV potential, though their hope is to create a live-action/CG hybrid similar to "Alvin and the Chipmunks" or "Garfield: The Movie."

If its an animated movie fine. Live action CG, dumb, Heathcliff doesnt translate well to live action. Garfield (both of them) sucked ass.

Heathcliff; to be portrayed on screen by Heath... Ledger... I dunno, I got nothin. Either way, this movie will surely be on par with Alvin and the sh*tmunks and Garfield in terms of terribleness.
