Writers Hired for Yogi Bear 2


Warner Bros. is moving forward with a sequel to their 2010 release, Yogi Bear. According to Variety, Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, two of the writers behind the original film, have signed on to provide the first draft.

Yogi Bear, released in 3D and based on the popular Hanna Barbera cartoon character, was directed by Eric Brevig and starred Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake, Tom Cavanagh, Anna Faris and Andy Daly. Brad Copeland was the other credited writer, but there’s no word yet on whether any of the other talent will be returning.

Outside of Yogi Bear, Ventimilia and Sternin have contributed to the recent Fox hit Rio and the upcoming DreamWorks film Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
