Screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber (Red, The Meg) have signed on to write Paramount Animation's Mighty Mouse film, according to Deadline. Descibed as a "hybrid film" incorporating live-action and animation, Mighty Mouse will reportedly be produced by Karen Rosenfelt and Robert Cort.

Originally created by Isadore "Izzy" Klein in 1940 as a parody of Superman named 'Super Fly,' the character was adapted by Paul Terry into "Super Mouse" for a series of 20th Century Fox animated shorts beginning in 1942. In 1943, Fox changed the character's name (for a final time) into Mighty Mouse.

Paramount has not set a release date for the Mighty Mouse film.
