Created 05/12/1999 - 23:00
It is rumored that filmmakers Barry Levinson and Paula Weinstein are
developing a live-action/animation project that would feature Bugs Bunny.
Preliminary discussions are said to have taken place for Robin Williams to
be Bugs' sidekick. The story line remains undisclosed, but it's said to be
less like WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? and more like ANCHORS AWEIGH, a 1945
musical which features a sequence in which Gene Kelly dances with
Hanna-Barbera's Jerry Mouse. There is also talk of bringing the Tasmanian
Devil to life via a live-action feature. The third project being developed
joins Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and other classic Warner Bros. cartoon stars
with characters from the TINY TOON ADVENTURES TV show.
