'Looney Tunes' reboot finds a writer

If "The Smurfs" and "The Muppets" have found success at the movies, perhaps Bugs Bunny will as well.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, there's a script in play to reboot the "Looney Tunes" franchise for the big screen.

Warner Bros. (which shares a parent company with CNN) has tapped former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Jenny Slate to pen the script. It's unclear what direction Slate will go in with a story, but the reboot's been described as a combination of CGI and live-action.

"Looney Tunes" in the past has been met with mixed reactions: While Michael Jordan's "Space Jam" in 1996 earned $230 million globally, 2003's "Looney Tunes: Back in Action" yielded only $68 million worldwide.

    You better return Daffy Duck to his roots. He's Daffy, not Greedy. They ruined Daffy Duck by turning him into some scheming ego-duck. Take him back to the old crazy, bouncing on his head Daffy from the early 1900's

    The only one to get Daffy Duck right since they ruined him in the 60's was his appearance in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

      Yes! I've been saying this for years. I always get more laughs from him then I do from the cross dressing rabbit.

      I've only know of one instance where Bugs gets shot and he freaked the hell out even though it barely scrapped his ears. Daffy though takes a shotgun blast to the face like a champ. Just reposition his beak, wipe the gunpowder residue off his face and he's ready for the next scene.

      Now somebody please pass the ketchup, I think its going to rain.

    Oh for goodness' sake, leave Looney Tunes alone. They're timeless. They play as well now as they did in the 1940s. I imagine an "I Love Lucy" reboot can't be far behind...

    It only took how long to do this? Most kids don't even know who Bugs Bunny is

    Never mind because I just found out he's dead. Shows you how out of the loop I am on Chuck Jones news. But he will be rolling over in his grave, right with Mel Blanc.

    CGI for a Looney Tunes movie, how lazy can Hollywood get? I assume Chuck Jones won't be behind this stink fest.
