Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are set to executive produce a new animated feature based on the classic cartoon “The Flintstones” for Warner Bros. Pictures and Gary Sanchez Productions.
“The Flintstones” premiered in 1960 and ran for six seasons before going into syndication for decades. It was turned into a high-profile 1994 live-action film and a less star-studded 2000 prequel.
Several attempts have been made to revive “The Flintstones” over the years. Now, like “The Smurfs,” Warners have now opted to forgo live-action in favour of a full-length animated adventure.
Chris Henchy (“The Campaign”) wrote the script for the new version.
