MGM is lining up a reinvention of its "Pink Panther" brand - planning a hybrid animation and live-action feature.

David Silverman ("The Simpsons Movie," "Monsters Inc.") will direct the caper film which will focus on the Pink Panther character rather than Inspector Clouseau.

The film is said to "harken back to the tone" shared by both the original cartoons created 50 years ago as well as those of the live-action Peter Sellers films by Blake Edwards and Walter Mirisch.

Mirisch and Edwards' widow Julie Andrews will produce.
