Warner Bros. Developing Animated FLINTSTONES Movie with Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are teaming up again for a new project. The content they are taking over however, is not so new. The duo is developing a new adaptation of "The Flintstones" for the big-screen.

Chris Henchy, who is also a McKay and Ferrell frequent collaborator, having penned "The Other Guys" and "The Campaign", is writing the screenplay. Warner Bros. will distribute the film.

In other "Flintstones" news, Seth MacFarlane had another project brewing that did not come to fruition. He planned on rebooting the TV franchise, which given MacFarlane's wit and humor, would certainly have been unique and hilarious, to say the least.

Ferrell and McKay have a very successful and established style and tone of their own, so they should definitely add some new flavor to the franchise. I just hope they don't make Bam-Bam, Pebbles, Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty CGI, like scary Garfield.

Are you looking forward to this project? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Some people don't like anime as much because of how serreal it is a lot of the times dark and gritty where as other animation that is more popular is light colourful with round appearing shapes this makes the characters cuter or funnier looking witch are more pleasing characteristics and these tricks make them more appealing to the viewer

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.
