Bugs Bunny Theatrical Film Planned


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

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 recently made a theatrical resurgence with a CGI short before Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. Two more shorts are planned before WB family films later this year.
