There's Going To Be An Animated Movie Starring Wile E. Coyote

Wile E. Coyote

Wile E. Coyote

Coyote vs. Acme - the working title - will be produced by Lego Batman director Chris McKay, and Jon and Josh Silberman have been hired to write the script.

Wile E. Coyote is part of Warner's Looney Tunes characters, which include Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, and Marvin the Martian.

The Siblerman duo are best-known for their work on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and recently worked on Living Biblically. A director hasn't been chosen yet, and it's now unknown if Coyote vs. Acme will be fully animated or a mixture of animation and live-action.

Major fire at Primark store in Belfast city centre
Flames engulfed the roof of the structure, destroying the rooftop clock, before spreading through the five-story building. Emergency services attended the scene of a huge fire at a scrap metal recycling factory in Limerick overnight.

Road Runner's nemesis, the perpetually unlucky Wile E. Coyote is finally getting his time to shine, big screen style.

This would be only the third theatrical Looney Tunes film, following 1996's Space Jam and 2003's Looney Tunes: Back in Action. Out of all the Looney Tunes characters with the most slaptstick potential, the arrogant and often tragic Wile E. Coyote offers limitless possibilities, even when he's acting alone at the edge of a cliff with a parachute and anvil.

While it's not clear what story Coyote Vs. Acme will tell - and considering Wile E. Coyote's almost 70-year history there are plenty of stories and adventures to choose from - the title may hint at a legal battle for the beloved character, one that might be familiar for fans. Do you hope other Looney Tunes characters get the feature film treatment? But that should still make for a fun movie, and I'm glad they're keeping it animated rather than trying to do a live-action film with a photoreal coyote who holds up signs saying "Help".
