The Pink Panther is coming (back) to the big screen.
MGM announced Monday it planned to reboot the franchise in a live-action/animation hybrid, focusing on the rosy-colored cat who soft-shoed his way through the intros to most of the films, rather than on the aloof Inspector Clouseau. They’ve tapped The Simpsons Movie director David Silverman to helm the project.
Based on Friz Freleng and David De Patie’s cartoons, the Pink Panther’s 11-feature film cinematic history has spanned five decades — made iconic by the collaboration between director Blake Edwards and star Peter Sellers, who portrayed Clouseau. MGM »
