Amidst all the superhero trailers rolling out of Comic-Con today, you’d be forgiven for not being able to focus on anything else. That’d be a shame, though, as a ton of other exciting news has been emerging from San Diego this weekend, such as the fact that Power Rangers scribe Max Landis will be penning an animated Pepé Le Pew movie for Warner Bros.
Details are scarce at the moment, but apparently the scribe pitched the idea to the studio a while back and they immediately got on board. That’s not surprising, either, as Landis is a high in demand screenwriter and Pepé Le Pew is a Looney Tunes character with a lot of history, dating all the way back to 1945.
For those unfamiliar with him, though, Deadline describes Le Pew as such:
The character Pepe Le Pew is known for strolling around Paris in the springtime when everyone’s thoughts are of love, and he’s always on the lookout for “l’amour” of his own. But he has a couple of problems — his malodorous scent and his refusal to take “no” for an answer.
Unfortunately, we’ve got no other information to share right now, but given that Landis is a very talented writer (despite a few misfires), we’re certainly curious to see his take on the iconic cartoon character.
Until we hear more, head on down to the comments section and let us know what you’d like to see in the upcoming Pepé Le Pew animated movie.
