Puss in Boots to Get His Own Movie Source: Variety November 19, 2004 Variety says that DreamWorks has hired writers Ed Decter and John Strauss to pen the animated film Puss in Boots, based on the popular Antonio Banderas-voiced character from Shrek 2. The trade says the studio is contemplating a direct-to-video release. The storyline is unclear at this point, but Banderas is likely to return to voice Puss in Boots. Decter and Strauss wrote Disney's The Lizzie Maguire Movie and the upcoming Fox feature Rebound, from director Steve Carr. They are also writing and producing The Jane Plan at Disney. DreamWorks Animation is also working on a third and fourth installment in the "Shrek" series. The principal voice actors are expected to return for the films, including Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz as the newlywed green ogres, Eddie Murphy as Donkey, and Banderas as Puss in Boots.
