It looks like moviegoers may once again see Bugs facing off against Marvin the Martian in a theater near them. For years the classic property has been sitting quietly in the background while more modern cartoon properties received more attention but it seems Warner Bros. Pictures is nearing a revival of sorts for their Looney Tunes characters. And Heat Vision reports the central plot point bringing them all together again will be the running ACME gag that fans of old will remember.
The trade reports that writers Kevin and Dan Hageman have sold an original pitch to the studio, with the focus of a feature film revolving around the fictional ACME warehouse -- the manufacturer of anything and everything used by many of the Looney Tunes characters. Much to his own chagrin, Wile E. Coyote was the most notorious user of the company's products in his quest to catch the Road Runner.
The studio hopes to relaunch the property to a new age of fans, with plans to have the feature film incorporate both live-action and CG.
