Alvin and the Chipmunks aren't the only Boomer-era animated rodents getting a big-screen facelift these days. The recent cineplex successes of the singing squeakers have apparently inspired Paramount to press on with its efforts to make a 'Mighty Mouse' movie.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Paramount and sister outlet Nickelodeon Movies are in the market for a new writer and director for the long-gestating project. The new scripter would be following in the footsteps of Brian and Mark Gunn ('Bring It On Again'), the last prominent screenwriters Paramount hired to try to build a better 'Mouse'-trap.
