WB ponies up for ‘Cats and Dogs’

Studio pays low six figures for pitch

Warner Bros. has taken a bite out of a pitch called “Cats and Dogs” from scribes Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.

Pitch is set in a high-tech spy world involving cats and dogs. It follows the exploits of the animals when humans aren’t looking. Ficarra and Requa earned a low six-figure sum for the pitch.

Zide Perry Films is producing the project. No other elements are attached.
