"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Twentieth Century Fox is developing an animated feature based on Mutts, the popular comic strip by Patrick McDonnell. Heat Vision reports that the cartoonist and his brother Robert McDonnell will write the screenplay, with Patrick serving as executive producer.
Launching in 1994, Mutts centers on an innocent Jack Russell terrier named Earl and a lisping, curious cat named Mooch, focusing on their friendship and their relationships with their owners and other animals in their neighborhood. Earl loves his human companion Ozzie while Mooch is indifferent to his owners Millie and Frank.
