In what is surely the result of some deranged game of Hollywood madlibs, we have learned today that Chloe Grace Moretz and Ken Jeong will star in a live action version of the classic animated show Tom And Jerry.
Per reports in Variety, this very real movie which is actually happening for some reason, recently pushed its release date forward from April 2021 to December 2020, presumably to fill some gaping cat and mouse-shaped hole in the market.
The film also stars Michael Pena, Colin Jost, Rob Delaney, Jordan Bolger and Pallavi Sharda, and per the official plot summary:
“The story centers on Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse getting kicked out of their home and relocating to a fancy New York hotel where Moretz’s character is an employee who will lose her job if she can’t evict Jerry.”
Tim Story, who was behind the Ride Along and Think Like A Man films, is set to direct. He’s also attached to the upcoming Monopoly film, starring Kevin Hart.
Chloe Grace Moretz will soon be seen in Bonnie and Clyde-themed film Love Is A Gun, alongside Jack O’Connell of Skins. She is also set to star in a feature film based on Bob Dylan‘s 1975 album Blood On The Tracks.
What a time to be alive.
