Beep beep, buddy!
According to Deadline, Looney Tunes evil “genius” Wile E. Coyote is getting his own movie. Jon and Josh Silberman (“Bordertown,” “Living Biblically,” “Deadbeat”) are writing “Coyote Vs. Acme,” with Chris McKay (“The Lego Batman Movie”) producing.
There’s no word in Deadline’s piece on whether “Coyote Vs. Acme” is connected to Ian Frazier’s collection of humor essays. The title of that collection is “Coyote V Acme,” which is also the name of one of the essays, which imagines the opening statement of an attorney representing Wile E. Coyote in a liability suit against the Acme corporation.
The Deadline report referenced previous Looney tunes movies — “Space Jam” (1996) and “Looney Tunes: Back in Action” (2003) — and we shouldn’t forget “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” (1988).
But there’s no word yet on whether this Wile E. Coyote movie would be animated, live-action, or another mix of both.
However it turns out, once the Warner Bros. film’s script is written, the Road Runner will probably walk away the winner. Again.Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook.
