Screenwriter Max Landis, who recently penned DC Comics' "Superman: American Alien," will tackle a Pepe Le Pew animated movie for Warner Bros.
Landis, whose credits include "Chronicle," "Victor Frankenstein," made the announcement during the Comic-Con International panel for his BBC America adaptation of Douglas Adams'"Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency."
You'll recall, of course, Pepe Le Pew from Warner Bros' "Looney Tunes" and "Merrie Melodies" shorts. A French-accented skunk, he's known for his romantic pursuit of female black cat, who through circumstances usually beyond her control, ends up with a white stripe and a very confused Pepe longing for her affections.
Landis' current slate includes the upcoming "Power Rangers" movie, and "Bright," a cop thriller starring Will Smith.
