The movie is based on the classic comic strip by Jim Davis, who sold the rights to financer/producer Alcon Entertainment (Blade Runner: Black Lotus) and will serve as executive producer. DNEG (Ron’s Gone Wrong) is producing the animation.

Mark Dindal is directing Garfield from a script by his The Emperor’s New Groove partner David Reynolds. Bridget McMeel and Craig Sost are exec producers alongside Davis; producers are John Cohen and Steven P. Wegner, Alcon’s Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, and DNEG Animation’s CEO Namit Malhotra and President Tom Jacomb.
