Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus and Peppermint Patty are heading back to the big screen to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Peanuts comic strip.

Film studio 20th Century Fox Animation announced on Tuesday it had acquired the rights to Charles M Schulz's series, with the film due in 2015.

Schulz's son Craig and grandson Bryan have worked on the script, which will be brought to life by Ice Age director Steve Martino.

The strip ran for 50 years from 1950.

In its prime, it reached readers in 75 countries, 2,600 papers and 21 languages every day.
