The film is to be a live-action/animation hybrid in the vein of Space Jam and Looney Tunes: Back In Action; it was originally planned as just a live-action film. It will be a look at the Acme corporation, the company that supplies Wile E. Coyote with all his goofy gadgets in the classic Warner Bros. Road Runner vs. Coyote shorts. Steve Carrell is the CEO of Acme.
The Lego Movie producers Roy Lee and Dan Lin are set to produce the film, with Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz handling the script. The pair have recently worked together on a few of the comic super heroes films, as well as Top Gun 2. Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are “in early negotiations to direct,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
