Sources in-the-know gave Comics2Film/CBR News an update on what to expect
that when Garfield the cat is brought to CGI life. In the new live-action and
animated feature he’ll have a slightly realistic look, a la “Stewart
Little” rather than simply looking like a cartoon character rendered in 3-D
(as with “Rocky and Bullwinkle”).
Tobolowsky is the latest actor to join the cast of “Garfield,” playing
a character named Happy. Fans will remember Tobolowsky as amnesiac Sammy Jankis
in “Memento”. The actor can currently be seen in the Gwenyth Paltrow
laugher, “A View From The Top.”
The movie stars Breckin Meyer (“Road Trip”) as Garfield’s owner Jon
Jennifer Love Hewitt as his prospective girlfriend, Liz. The voice of the roly-poly
red tabby himself has not yet been cast.
In other fat cat news, Fritz at the German Comicgate
site tells us that Fox has announced “Garfield” is set to bow January
29th, 2004 in Germany.
For who missed it, C2F/CBR News previously
reported that the U.S. release is slated for December 19th of this year.
In its seventh week of release
“Daredevil” closed the weekend just short of the $100 million
milestone. According to early estimates published by Box
Office Mojo, the movie without fear ranked 16th for the weekend. It’s
total domestic is now estimated at $99.5 million meaning it’ll likely need one
more week to hit the bullseye.
