Warners Developing Marvin The Martian Feature

Bugs Bunny’s extraterrestrial nemesis Marvin the Martian is being eyed by the execs at Warner Brothers for a big screen film. According to Variety, the film will be a feature the tenacious alien coming to Earth to destroy Christmas and will be a mixture of live action and computer generated animation.


I’ve got two words to say about this- Space. Jam.

I have five more words to say- Looney. Tunes. Back. In. Action.

I’m sure some nitwit studio executive really thinks this is a good way to capitalize on properties they already own. However, it seems that since they have not hired either a director or a writer, they seem to be putting the cart before the horse. Rather than coming up with an idea for a film and then trying to get some work-for-hire types to come in and make it, the execs¬†should be approaching various writers and directors to see if they have any stories they want to tell featuring the Looney Tunes characters. This just sounds like a bad updating of Santa Claus Conquers The Martians.
