New Line and Warner Bros. Pictures are planning “Speedy Gonzales”, a live-action/CG-animated combo feature based on the animated Looney Tunes character says Heat Vision.
Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen, who adapted comic “Garfield” into a similar style live-action/CG hybrid family film, will pen the script for the coming-of-age story which is set in the present day.
The story has Speedy, a young and misunderstood Mexican mouse, finding himself leaving his family to go out in the world and figure out what he’s good at. He soon makes friends with a nervous race-car driver.
George Lopez will voice the character and produce along with Anne Lopez, Lynette Ramirez, Jerry Weintraub, Tracy Ryerson and Jill Arthur.
