'Tom and Jerry' Movie Adds Ken Jeong, Rob Delaney to Cast
"Tom and Jerry" are welcoming a few new friends.
The movie, which will be directed by Tim Story ("Shaft"), will feature animated versions of Tom Cat and Jerry Mouse, who will remain silent like in the original cartoons.
The story follows Tom and Jerry after they get kicked out of their home and relocate to a fancy New York hotel. Moretz will play Kayla, a new employee at the hotel who is in danger of losing her job if she can't evict Jerry. So, she hires Tom to come in and get rid of Jerry, which proves to be easier said than done.
That may be for the best, as the duo will likely need each other to defeat Kayla’s villainous boss, who isn’t a big fan of either cat nor mouse.
Jeong will play a character named Jackie, while Delaney will portray DuBros.
"Tom and Jerry" is one of several animated/live-action hybrids in development at Warner Bros. Another is the high-profile sequel/reboot "Space Jam 2," which stars LeBron James alongside Looney Tunes characters like Bugs Bunny.
