SNL’s Jenny Slate Pens “Looney Tunes” Film

Former SNL cast member Jenny Slate is set to pen the script for a combination live-action/CG animated “Looney Tunes” movie at Warner Bros. Pictures says Heat Vision.

Warners had big success in 1996 with “Space Jam” which mixed basketball legend Michael Jordan with the traditionally animated characters that fall under the Looney Tunes banner such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Wile E. Coyote and more.

Seven years later came “Looney Tunes: Back in Action” which got decent reviews but flopped hard at the box-office. Details of this incarnation’s storyline are being kept under wraps.

David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith, David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford will produce.
