On May 24, 2016, it was announced that Alcon Entertainment would develop a new CG animated 'Garfield' film, with John Cohen and Steven P. Wegner producing, from a script by Mark Torgove and Paul A. Kaplan. Mark Dindal was announced as director on November 12, 2018, with pre-production beginning the following month. In August 2019, Viacom acquired the rights to Garfield, leaving the status of the movie at the time uncertain. However, in December 2020, Dindal confirmed that the film was still in production. On November 1, 2021, Chris Pratt was announced as the voice of Garfield, with animation provided by DNEG, a visual effects and animation studio who previously worked on the animated feature 'Ron's Gone Wrong'. DNEG will produce the film with Alcon, and Sony Pictures will maintain global distribution rights for the film, except for China. It was also announced that 'Finding Nemo' screenwriter David Reynolds will instead write the script. Dindal and Reynolds previously worked together on the Disney animated film 'The Emperor's New Groove'. Voice actor Frank Welker, who has been voicing Garfield since 2007, expressed his disappointment on not being contacted to voice the character.[https://twitter.com/amberleahhx/status/1468973143343595529 EXCLUSIVE: Frank Welkers thoughts on Chris Pratts casting as Garfield. #FrankWelker #Garfield #ChrisPratt]
