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.
