Steve Carell Set to Star in New ‘Looney Tunes’ Film


Steve Carell has been tapped to star in an upcoming Looney Tunes movie.

The funnyman is attached to lead the as-yet-untitled film, which will center around the fictional Acme Corporation in the popular cartoon world that includes the likes of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.

Warner Bros. bosses have recruited X-Men: First Class writers to pen the script, while Carell will reunite with his Crazy Stupid Love co-directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who are in early negotiations to helm the project.

Plot details of the Acme movie have been kept under wraps, but the film will “not center on the Looney Tunes characters and is being planned as a CG/live-action hybrid,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The plot definitely sounds interesting. I have no idea how they’ll pull off a Looney Tunes movie that doesn’t center around the characters, but if you do leave your ideas in the comments below.
