According to the Hollywood Reporter, classic cartoon character Woody Woodpecker may be staging a comeback.
Universal-based animation house Illumination Entertainment (“Despicable Me,” next year’s “The Lorax”) is reportedly working on a feature film starring the rambunctious red woodpecker.
Woody's an old showbiz vet: the crazy bird made his debut in 1940, and was a hit in World War II-era America.
His popularity continued into the ‘50s, and lasted for decades. Universal hopes to modernize the wily bird and start a new franchise based on the character. (Hopefully they’ll skip his maniacal laugh.)
“Blades of Glory” scribes John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky are said to be in talks to write a new story for Woody.

The author is a MORON!! ("Hopefully they’ll skip his maniacal laugh".) Woody's "maniacal" laugh is what makes Woody, Woody!!
