Modern takes on the classic Hanna-Barbera toons have had trouble getting off the ground, but The Jetsons may literally rise above. Reports indicate a new live-action version of the far-out future family is gearing up for Warner Bros., executive produced by someone with a little Future experience.
In today’s Things That Make You Go Hmm news: The new animated Jetsons movie, based on the popular Hanna-Barbera TV series, has brought one of Sausage Party’s co-directors, Conrad Vernon, on board to “develop” and probably also to direct the movie.
Over the last several years we’d heard reports that a new movie was in the works to bring beloved retro cartoon ‘The Jetsons’ back, with Kanye West involved in some capacity. Apparently those plans have changed, and ‘The Jetsons’ will now become a new animated feature film with the help of the screenwriter of the new ‘Scooby-Doo’ animated film. Just keepin’ things in the Hanna Barbera family.
Do you really need a reason to do anything when you're Kanye West? The rapper, producer, fashion-lover, and baby daddy of Kim Kardashian is trying on a new pair of (presumably excessively expensive) shoes as the "creative director" of a new 'Jetsons' movie.
