Tom And JerryClassic cartoon characters Tom And Jerry are aiming to replicate the success of the Scooby-Doo film franchise by starring in a live-action movie remake.

The cat and mouse comedy duo became family favorites when they made their small screen debut in the 1940s, and an animated feature-length version, Tom and Jerry: The Movie was released in 1992. And now they're going one step further, with a live-action remake set to hit theater screens.

Bosses are hoping the film will achieve similar success to the 2002 Scooby-Doo movie and the 2004 sequel, Monsters Unleashed, which grossed $457 million at the global box office.

The new film will center on how Tom and Jerry met and their subsequent rivalry, according to Daily Variety.
