‘Clifford The Big Red Dog’ Gets A Director

Clifford The Big Red DogDavid Bowers? More like David Bow-wow-ers. The FLUSHED AWAY, ASTRO BOY, DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: RODERICK RULES and DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: DOG DAYS director is said to be taking on CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG. For those not in the know, it’s about a big red dog named Clifford. Together with his owner Emily Elizabeth, Clifford journeys through life being gigantic and awkward, but always loved.

The books originated back in 1963, and under the watchful eye of Universal Studios, the film will become a CGI/live-action. This probably makes Bowers a grand choice, having worked in both styles over the years. The script comes from Matt Lopez, writer of THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE.

We’ll now engage in the painful wait to see who will be cast to voice such a gigantic pup. The late great John Ritter voiced him in the animated series, but for cinema’s sake I think Christian Bale would be perfect for the role (only if he does his Batman voice).

Luke likes many things, films and penguins being among them. He's loved films since the age of 9, when STARGATE and BATMAN FOREVER changed the landscape of modern cinema as we know it. His love of film extends to all aspects of his life, with trips abroad being planned around film locations and only buying products featured in Will Smith movies. His favourite films include SEVEN SAMURAI, PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC, IN BRUGES, LONE STAR, GODZILLA, and a thousand others.

    Clifford The Big Red Dog isn’t British he’s supposed to be American so they should use Kel Mitchell Kenan Thompson or George Lopez they should be nominated and be candidated to be voicing Clifford The Big Red Dog even if he talks and speaks fluenty in english
