Tim Hill is in talks to direct a live action/CG version of Alvin and the Chipmunks for Fox 2000 and Bagdasarian Productions, the company behind the original characters.

The film is, of course, based on the animated trio of singing chipmunks. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox is expected to cast a comic actor in the role of Dave Seville, pal to the three chipmunks; Alvin, Simon and Theodore will be computer generated.

No production schedule has been set for Alvin and the Chipmunks.
