Paramount Pictures has picked up the film rights to the beloved children's book series "Clifford the Big Red Dog" and is developing it as a live-action/CG hybrid feature (ala "The Smurfs," "Garfield").
Justin Malen, who penned the upcoming "Baywatch" film, will adapt the script from the 75-book strong series created by Norman Bridwell in 1963. The story follows the 25-foot-tall canine and his owner, the young Emily Elizabeth, and their misadventures together.
The books were previously adapted into a video series in the 1980s, two television series, and a 2004 animated film. David Bowers ("Astro Boy") was attached to helm this film when it was previously setup at Universal Pictures.

When I sit through a film such as Zootropolis, Rango, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Eddie The Eagle or Coraline, I can’t help but be thankful somebody has bothered. As a parent as well as a movie lover, I’ve grown to really dislike family movies that just turn up to act as a surrogate babysitter for 90 minutes, with no intention of becoming anybody’s favourite film. The films I'm going to talk about are the family movies therefore that I think both try and do something a bit more, yet continue to fly under many people's radar.
A bonus mention before we get going, and number 26 in the list, much to my surprise: Alvin & The Chipmunks 4. I was expecting next to zero from it, courtesy »
