Bugs Bunny Film On The Way?
Bugs Bunny looks set to be turned into a live action film. Warner Bros. have hired David Berenbaum, who wrote the scripts for Elf, The Haunted Mansion and The Spiderwick Chronicles, to write a draft for the film.
The new Bugs Bunny film will be the wascally wabbit’s first screen outing since he appeared alongside renowned thespian Brendan Fraser in 2003s Looney Tunes: Back in Action – a film that failed to replicate the outstanding levels of storytelling achieved with 1997’s Space Jam.
The planned Bugs Bunny movie, like the soon to be released Yogi Bear, will team live action with computer animation. A recent poster for Yogi Bear has received some rather amusing criticism because its tagline, ‘Great things come in bears’, is a double-entendre and Yogi seems to be pleasuring Boo Boo.
