The big-budget live-action film is being directed by Oscar nominee Chris Sanders (The Croods, How to Train Your Dragon) from a screenplay by Oscar nominee Michael Green (Logan, American Gods).
Erwin Stoff (The Matrix, 13 Hours) will produce alongside co-producer Ryan Stafford (War for the Planet of the Apes). Diana Pokorny (Downsizing, Daddy’s Home) will serve as executive producer with Steve Asbell overseeing the feature for Fox. The outlet notes that the project will rely heavily on the special effects studio Technoprops, purchased by Fox last year.
Previous adaptations of the story include the Clark Gable led 1935 version and the 1972 film starring Charlton Heston, with a number of other movies and TV specials inspired by the classic story.
The Call of the Wild is set to open in theaters on February 21, 2020.
