DreamWorks Animation has plans to bring the Harvey Comics character Hot Stuff the Little Devil to the big screen with The Hollywood Reporter suggesting that the project may mark the first-ever live-action/CGI hybrid film from the studio. “Bob’s Burgers” scribes (and siblings) Lizzie and Wendy Molyneux are attached to provide the screenplay.
Hot Stuff was created by Warren Kremer (who also created vintage funnybook characters like Richie Rich, Little Audrey and Casper the Friendly Ghost) and made his first appearance in 1957’s “Hot Stuff” #1. A young, pitch-fork-wielding devil, Hot Stuff often uses his demonic powers to perform good deeds, much to the chagrin of the older devils.
There’s no timeframe yet on when to expect a Hot Stuff film in theaters, but check back for details on the project as they become available.
