Paramount Pictures is looking to develop the animated classic “Mighty Mouse” into a major motion picture. Having already adapted and developed several film projects of similar nature such as “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” and the soon to be released “Smurfs” and “Marvin the Martin,” it was only a matter of time before they got to the superheroic Mighty Mouse.
Currently being pushed into production, the studio has been actively meeting with writers and directors to as well as deciding whether to team up with developers at Dreamworks or to product the project on their own. According to GeekTyrant, Paramount is interesting in keeping “Mighty Mouse” in house.
