Paramount is gearing up for its live-action/CGI adaptation of Clifford The Big Red Dog, and we have some details on the production to share.
We have learned that production on the film has been moved to sometime this summer in New York, the studio was originally set to roll cameras next month.
The film based on the long-running children’s books is centered on a young Emily who receives a cute red puppy named Clifford for her birthday. Everything changes when she’s left in the care of her aunt for a week and he grows to be 25 feet tall.
We were also able to get our hands on the character breakdown for Emily. Take a look below.
EMILY: Female, age 10–13 to play 11-year-old 6th grader, Emily is a precocious, wise and kind girl with a hole in her heart. Emily is an independent young lady. She lives in Harlem, on a charming block in NYC. She shares an apartment with her mother in a classic walk-up building. For a week, Emily is left in the care of her “not so put together” aunt, ABBY. The studio is interested in actors of all ethnicities for the role.
Walt Becker (Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip) is directing from a script by Justin Malen (Father Figures), Ellen Rapoport (The Starlet), and Blaise Hemingway (Playmobil: The Movie). Silvertongue Films’ Deborah Forte (Goosebumps, Mortal Engines) is producing alongside Jordan Kerner (The Smurfs films).
Paramount Pictures’ Clifford is expected to hit theaters on November 13, 2020.
