A sequel to the family movie “Clifford the Big Red Dog” is in the works at Paramount.
The studio made the announcement on Tuesday after a 5-day theatrical opening of $22.2 million for the original movie, which launched simultaneously in theaters and on Paramount+ on November 10.
“Clifford the Big Red Dog” is adapted from Norman Bridwell’s beloved children’s book series of the same title and centers around Emily Elizabeth whose tiny new puppy grew to be 10 feet tall overnight.
The movie features Darby Camp as Emily and also stars Jack Whitehall, John Cleese, and Tony Hale.
Walt Becker directed the movie from a script developed by Jay Scherick, David Ronn, and Blaise Hemingway who penned the screenplay from a story by Justin Malen and Ellen Rapoport.
“Clifford the Big Red Dog” was made in association with eOne Films, which is the film’s distributor in Canada and the United Kingdom, and produced by Scholastic Entertainment and the Kerner Entertainment Company.
