New Line and Mandaly Pictures are the heroes the day because they announced through Variety that they plan to make Furry Friday, the exact movie that you’re imagining right now in your mind based on the pun title.

A dog and a cat swap bodies. It’s live-action. It cannot be a bad idea.

Mandaly producer (and Oscar winner) Cathy Schulman’s script is getting a rewrite from writer David H. Steinberg. It’s an interesting choice considering that much of his work has been in the teenage world of American Pie 2 and the slightly out of teenage world of Slackers (which remains an underrated gem). He’s also the writer responsible for the forthcoming Puss in Boots movie.

To reiterate: this is a movie about a dog and a cat switching bodies.

You may scoff, but to the right is photographic proof that live-action animal movies can work incredibly well. Furry Friday will undoubtedly be a family-focused flick, and there’s nothing wrong with that. At the very least, we should be glad they aren’t trying to pun off of the Schulman-produced Darfur Now. Seriously. It would be so easy. They must have at least had a meeting about it.
