... If the boys and girls at Warners can pull it off:
Warner Bros. is taking a trip to Jellystone Park.
The studio is developing a feature version of "Yogi Bear," the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, and "Surf's Up" co-helmer/co-writer Ash Brannon is attached to direct ...
The project, culled from Warners' 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 sidekick Boo Boo will be done in CG ...
Okay, so we know Yogi and the Booster won't be guys in bear suits ... despite the picture above.
But who do you see as Ranger Smith? Is it Tom Cruise? Ben Affleck? Shia LaBeouf? This could either end up like The Chipmunks' feature ... or Looney Tunes, Back in Action.
As my sainted father used to tell me: "You get awful tired of seeing that bear talk out of the side of his face." Have the producers thought of this?
* The vast library of Yogi properties came about when Ted Turner bought Hanna-Barbera, and then was absorbed by Time-Warner.
