Warner Bros. is developing a feature film adaption of the classic Looney Tunes character Wile E. Coyote. The film will be called Coyote Vs. Acme and the studio has taken onboard Jon and Josh Silberman to write the script, who had acted as the supervising producers for CBS’ Living Biblically and writers of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. With Wile E. Coyote coming to the big screen, it would be one of a kind step where a creatively incompetent antagonist who always lost at the end.
Yet, no further communication has taken place to reveal the details of the story. Chris Mckay will be producing the film who had produced The LEGO Batman Movie. He is acting as an executive producing The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part which will be coming next year. Previously, he directed and co-produced for Titan Maximum and Moral Orel. It was in 1949 that Wile E. Coyote appeared for the first time in the Chuck Jones’ Looney Tunes cartoon Fast and Furry-ous which was written by Michael Maltese. And from then it became an important part of the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies universe. As far as the original stories go, Wile E. Coyote is a hungry predator who pursuits a Road Runner which is the fastest bird on a desert. Coyote who orders weapons through the mail from Acme Co. is always outwitted by the bird. Coyote has made appearances in numerous TV shows, video games, comics, and a series of stereoscopic 3D theatrical shorts.
Originally, Coyote was a mute character who found his voice in 1952 with Mel Blanc, and later with Joe Alaskey, Maurice LaMarche, Dee Bradley Baker, Daran Norris, and presently JP Karliak (New Looney Tunes).
According to Variety, the movie will be animated and perhaps will skip the past films’ mix of live-action and animation.
