Jim Davis' long-running Garfield comic strip has been optioned for a series of CGI-animated films by Alcon Entertainment, reports Deadline. The potential film franchise is being spearheaded by Despicable Me producer John Cohen and Steven P. Wegner, with Davis also named as an executive producer.

“Jim Davis’s creation has been an international sensation for all ages for decades, and we are thrilled to bring an animated Garfield feature to the big screen,” said Alcon c-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

This would be unconnected to the two previous Garfield CGI/live-action films by 20th Century Fox.
