BUGS BUNNY to return to the big screen


"Warner Bros. is planning to bring Bugs Bunny to the big screen in a live-action film.

David Berenbaum, the screenwriter of Elf and The Spiderwick Chronicles has been hired to draft the film which, like the studio's upcoming Yogi Bear, will blend live action with computer animation.

Bugs Bunny, who recently celebrated his 70th birthday, has not appeared on the big screen since 2003's Looney Tunes: Back in Action. Other 'Looney Tunes' characters [Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner] recently made a theatrical resurgence with a CGI short before Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. Two more [3D] shorts are planned before WB family films [(Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole and Yogi Bear)] later this year."

If they do this right, this will work. If not, Warner Bros. will ruin Bugs Bunny like Disney ruined Herbie the Love Bug! The Love Bug was the highest-grossing film of 1969! And they stuck him with a dumb redhead who can't keep herself out of jail! (not to assume all redheads are dumb - see Emma Stone).

By the way, Looney Tunes: Back in Action wasn't all bad. It was okay, Brendan Fraser did fine. The animation should've been 2D like Who Framed Roger Rabbit?.
