So far, it is not known when the new "Garfield" movie starring Chris Pratt will be released. The plot of the upcoming animated movie is also still unknown, but instead, the next top-class addition to the cast has already been announced. We are referring to Hollywood legend Samuel L. Jackson, who is to take on the role of Garfield's father Vic. This role was created specifically for the new film, but no further details have been revealed by those responsible yet.
"Chicken Little" director Mark Dindal will be in charge of directing the movie, which will be adapted from a screenplay by David Reynolds. Among other projects, Reynolds has previously worked on Disney's "Tarzan" and "Finding Nemo" and is by no means new to the animated film business.
We will keep you posted as soon as we know more about a release date or some initial plot information.
