What’s up, Doc? Bugs Bunny back on the big screen?!
Warner Bros. is in chats to produce a new feature length Bugs Bunny movie, Deadline.com divulged in a scoop last week. Studio bosses have commissioned Elf screenwriter David Berenbaum to write the planned live action/CG feature film.
The production would be the first time that Bugs has appeared on the big screen since Brendan Fraser’s 2003 movie Looney Tunes: Back In Action. The entire Looney Tunes gang joined Michael Jordan and Bill Murray 1996’s Space Jam.
Bugs Bunny made his debut in 1940, the creation of cartoonist Tex Avery and voiced by Mel Blanc, who also provided vocals for other iconic Looney Tunes characters, including Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig.
What do you think, Crunchers? Do we need more Bugs on the big screen?
