Road Runner hunter and all-round famished genius Wile E. Coyote is set to get his own movie in Coyote vs. Acme.
We’re not sure if we were just weird as kids, but we always barracked for the coyote, rather than that smug, smarty-feathers Road Runner. After all, the poor guy was just trying to follow nature’s way and get a meal!
Anyway, hopefully he’ll have a bit more success satiating his hunger in this live action and animation combo flick based on the genius Looney Tunes cartoons. According to Variety, it’s being produced by The LEGO Batman Movie director Chris McKay, and is set to be directed by Dave Green, who last gave us Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
There are no story details as yet, although there’s speculation from the title that we may be in for a legal-based story involving Wile E. Coyote finally taking Acme to task (and court) due to the sometimes questionable quality of their products.
