The film franchise has had a spotty record of late, going 1 for 2 (or 0 for 2, depending on how you see it) in its recent live-action/animation hybrids. Sure, some of us can enjoy Space Jam every now and again because of Bill Murray (that moment when the head Monstar mistakes him for Dan Aykroyd is pure comedy gold) but no one left Looney Tunes: Back In Action going “let’s do that again!” and that movie co-starred Steve Martin in all of his goofy glory.
Well, word is that Steve Carell is set to star in a third film, this one simply titled Acme. It is to be written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, the duo behind the pretty great X-Men: First Class.
Warner Bros. has yet to reveal details of the plot but with a title like Acme, we’re going to assume that a certain wily coyote will make an appearance.
