Hoping to ride the coat-tails of the "Chipmunk" success, but having learned nothing from the flop that was "Garfield," we reported back in March that Fox was fast-tracking this one to strike while the iron was hot. Wilson was the final piece to the production - which is destined to be as unfunny and un-entertaining as the played-out comic strip its adapted from.
The Hollywood Reporter gives the details:
In adapting the strip created in 1954 by Brad Anderson and Phil Leeming, the script by Tim Rasmussen and Vince Di Meglio ["License to Wed"] sees Marmaduke navigate a volatile Mutts vs. Pedigrees turf war, woo the purebred of his dreams and overcome a fall from grace.
No release date has been listed, but expect Fox to drop this steamer into some family-friendly seasonal time slot in the near future.
