Comic Strip HEATHCLIFF Getting the CGI/Live-Action Feature Film Treatment from Waterman Entertainment

Hot off the heels of the production company’s acquisitions of the rights to The Brave Little Toaster and Mr. Ed, Waterman Entertainment has picked up yet another family-favorite property.  The company announced today that they are plotting a feature film iteration of the comic strip Heathcliff.  As with Toaster and Mr. Ed, the film will be envisioned as a CGI/live-action blend with a contemporary storyline.  Waterman Entertainment is the same company behind those awful Alvin and the Chipmunks films, so it’s safe to assume we’re in for a very commercialized iteration of Heathcliff.

The Heathcliff comic strip, created by George Gately in 1973, centered on a wisecracking cat who enjoyed annoying his human companions (as do all cats in general, I believe).  The character was previously adaptated for two different animated series in 1980 and 1984.  Hit the jump to read the full press release.
