Clifford The Big Red Dog Movie in the Works

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the classic Clifford the Big Red Dog series from Scholastic Entertainment is getting ready for a big screen adaptation courtesy of Illumination Entertainment and Universal. The planned Clifford movie will use a mix of live-action and CG animation, and will still be completely based on the Norman Bridwell series of books, as well as the 2D animated adaptation from Nelvana.

Matt Lopez (of Race to Witch Mountain, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) has been attached to the project as writer, while Chris Meledandri (of the Lorax, Despicable Me) will be co-producing along with Scholastic President Deborah Forte (of Maya and Miguel, The Golden Compass).

Originally published in 1963, Clifford focuses on the adventures of a 25 foot tall red dog and his owner, a young girl named Emily Elizabeth. The book explains that it was Emily’s love for Clifford that made him grow to gigantic proportions, which forced their family to leave the city and move to the wide open spaces of Bridwell Island, where Clifford will have access to wider living spaces.
