LOONEY TUNES Spin-Off Movie ACME In The Works With X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Writers

If your not too old for Looney Tunes as of now then you will be excited for this news as another feature film is currently in development with the writers of X-Men: First Class. Hit the jump for more!

It has been years since the last Looney Tunes theatrical film has been released with "Looney Tunes: Back in Action" in 2003 which starred Brendan Fraser and Steve Martin and previously before that "Space Jam" with Michael Jordan. Now they are set to make a return but not in a way you might be thinking.

Warner Bros is currently working on a brand new feature film called "Acme". The plot details are unknown and whether if this will be in live-action or animated or both, but we do have a star attached who is Steve Carrell. The writers of "X-Men: First Class" Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz will pen the script. It is described as a spin-off set within the Looney Tunes universe and has been since in development from 2010. No word on any other Looney Tunes projects in the works, Space Jam 2 has been reportedly in the works for a while but nothing of the project as of now. 

Acme is the fictional company set within the Looney Tunes universe known for making whacky and insane gadgets/weapons that always seems to backfire horribly. With Steve Carrell set to star I think it's safe to say we can prepare for a constant laugh riot.

You know, when I first saw this news on Twitter, I actually thought to myself "this is something I can see Jacky posting, you know, if Nail or Pasto doesn't."

I always try not to be that guy who comes in to an article just to complain about or express disinterest in something that I wasn't going to watch anyway, but damn this one is making that difficult.
BlackIceJoe - 8/27/2014, 1:27 PM
It will be interesting to see if it is live action or if it will be 2D animation or even 3D animation. I think a bit of all three would be cool and could make for an exciting movie.
