Marvin the Martian…MOVIE!
He is undoubtedly one of my favorite WB toons…
According to Variety, Warner Bros. is launching development of a MARVIN THE MARTIAN feature film featuring a combination of live action… and CGI animation.
Created by Chuck Jones with his first appearance in a Looney Tunes cartoon in 1948, Marvin was often intent on blowing up the Earth, only to be foiled by Bugs Bunny.
The plot of this upcoming film is a Christmas story, that has Marvin coming to Earth to destroy the holiday, but he’s prevented from doing so when he’s trapped in a gift box.
According to IMDB, the film is slated for a 2011 release.
Not enough detail to really speculate about it now, but I should say that I am a bit concerned about the CGI with this classic toon, but I suppose time will tell.
