Warner Bros is developing a feature new version of "Yogi Bear," from the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, and "Surf's Up" co-helmer/co-writer Ash Brannon is attached to direct it.
Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, who executive produced "That '70s Show" and are writing a new feature called "Tooth Fairy" for Fox, are penning the screenplay...
The project, pulled from the Warners Brothers vast library, is planned as a live-action/animated hybrid along the lines of Fox's 2007 hit "Alvin & the Chipmunks." Much of the movie will be live-action, but Yogi Bear and his sidekick Boo Boo will be done in CG.
Yogi Bear first appeared as a supporting character in 1958 in another classic cartoon, "The Huckleberry Hound Show." In 1961, good ole Yogi got his own show, which has aired in reruns frequently during the past half-century.
Yogi's exploits take place in Jellystone Park, where he and Boo Boo get into good-natured mischief and must elude their nemesis, Ranger Smith.
