I was at Cinescape, an entertainment news site, and they had an article about the Garfield movie.
What? You didn't know there was going to be a Garfield movie? :-) It'll be live-action with CGI animals, like the Scooby Doo movie. Bill Murray will do the voice of Garfield, Debra Messing will do the voice of Arlene, Breckin Meyer will play Jon, and Jennifer Love Hewitt will play Liz, Garfield's vet. Right now, they're saying the release date is June 4, 2004.
If that date sounds familiar, it's because that's also the release date for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Gee, I wonder who will have the better opening weekend. :-)
Anyway, Garfield sounds like a cute movie so far. Cinescape's latest article has a picture of Liz holding Garfield. He doesn't look exactly like the comic strip version (his stripes aren't black, for one thing), but he's still very cute.
