Fox Picks Up Tim Hill’s Playdate


20th Century Fox is getting back in bed with Alvin and the Chipmunks director Tim Hill, buying the family film pitch for something called Playdate, which will be written by Hill and Dave Johnson and directed by Hill.

Produced by Nicky Weinstock’s Invention Films, the plot of the movie is being kept under wraps as is whether or not the movie will combine the live acton and CG animation of Hill’s biggest hits Alvin and the Chipmunks and Hop.
