Looney Tunes ACME Company gets a movie

Looney Tunes ACME Company gets a movie

The beep-beep’ing, What’s up Doc’cin, That’s all Folks’ian world of the Looney Tunes are definitely, er, back in action! Check this : Warner Bros have a live-action/CGI hybrid Bugs Bunny film in development, they also recently announced a Pepe le Pew flick (with Mike Myers voicing the stinky, sleazy rodent), and they’ve been tinkering with a “Marvin the Martian” movie for the better part of 18 months. Something tells me they see potential there.

Now comes word that the studio has snapped up a pitch about the ACME Warehouse, the establishment that makes and distributes – to folks like Wile E.Coyote – explosives and so on (Steve Martin played the head of the dastardly corporation in Joe Dante’s “Looney Tunes : Back in Action”) but, funnily enough, the film will not feature the Looney Tunes characters (!) – nup, not even the Roadrunner-hating Coyote.

Instead, the ACME movie will, says THR, be “a live-action CG hybrid featuring the many outlandish devices of the company in a tone that recalls the Amblin pics of the 1980s or a Men in Black-style movie.”

Warners hopes the first flick, written by Kevin and Dan Hageman, will be the start of a new franchise. It could work… but leaving the Looney Tunes characters out of the film is a bit like leaving the box out of “Boxing Helena” no? Don’t they go together!?
