The lasagna loving feline Garfield will hit the big screen once again in a few years time, with Chris Pratt providing his voice.

The Garfield films, released in 2004 and 2006 respectively, were sizeable hits for 20th Century Fox. The story goes that Bill Murray only signed on to voice Garfield because he was under the impression he’d be working with one half of the Coen brothers, not realising that the screenwriter was actually Joel Cohen, best known for co-writing Toy Story.

Since then there have been a couple of straight to DVD films, but now Garfield is heading back to the big screen

No plot details have been released as of yet, but based on the comic strips by Jim Davis we can be pretty sure it will involve hi-jinks and lasagna.

Chris Pratt will voice Garfield alongside Samuel L. Jackson as Vic, an original human character created for the film, described as Garfield’s father, seemingly taking the place of Jon who filled a similar role in the comics.

Mark Dindal is directing from a script by Finding Nemo writer David Reynolds.

Garfield will be released in 2024.
