Live-action/animated 'Clifford the Big Red Dog' gets release date
Not all giant movie creatures are as intimidating as Godzilla or King Kong. Some are downright cuddly.
"Clifford the Big Red Dog" is finally making his way to the big screen, courtesy of Universal Pictures, who will release the live-action/animated film April 8, 2016.
The studio has been talking about adapting ?Scholastic Media's best-selling children's book series for some years, but this is the first time they've set a concrete release date.
Norman Bridwell's "Clifford the Big Red Dog" was first published in 1963, and has spawned dozens of books through the decades, and inspired a TV adaptation which aired on PBS Kids from 2000 to 2003.
Scholastic Media’s Deborah Forte will produce the film version. No writers or director have yet been set.
