Clifford's Really Big Movie

Clifford the Big Red Dog: Paramount Pictures has acquired rights to Clifford the Big Red Dog.

It was later adapted into a TV series and an animated movie, Clifford's Really Big Movie (above). Justin Malen has pitched a new take on the material and will be writing the screenplay for the live-action/CG movie. [Deadline]
