Warner Brothers wants to bring Bugs, Daffy and the rest of the Looney Tunes gang to a new generation.
To that end, the studio has hired former Saturday Night Live writer Jenny Slate to craft a new script featuring the classic animated characters.
No word yet on if the feature will be strictly animated or a blend of live-action and animation as we’ve seen in Space Jam and other features with the classic characters in recent years.
Warners recently wanted to see the Looney Tunes universe revived in a film focusing on the Acme Warehouse, but that project has stalled in development limbo.
No word yet on if Slate’s take would combine elements of the Acme project (which reportedly didn’t include any of the big-name Looney Tunes characters) or be an entirely new direction for the popular, iconic characters.
Harry Potter producer David Heyman, Dark Shadows writer & author Seth Grahame-Smith, and media mogul David Katzenberg have all signed on to produce.
