Fox’s MOUSE GUARD Film To Begin Production in January

Newsarama is reporting

20th Century Fox’s Mouse Guard movie is scheduled to begin production this January with a $150 million budget, according to That Hashtag Show. Based on the comic book series by David Petersen, Fox’s Mouse Guard is planned as a hybrid live-action/motion-capture film similar to Walt Disney Pictures’ The Jungle Book.

“When guardsmice Saxon, Kenzie and Lieam are dispatched to find a missing merchant mouse that never arrived at his destination, they stumble onto much more than they had bargained for—intrigue, betrayal and a deadly, traitorous plot to overthrow the stronghold of Lockhaven,” reads BOOM! Studios’ description of Mouse Guard’s first volume.
