A live-action film focusing on the wacky gadget corporation...
Steve Carell is set to get a little looney. THR reports that Carell is set to star in Warner Bros.' as-yet-untitled Acme movie, which is inspired by the company's famous Looney Tunes cartoons. The film will be written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor) and centers on the infamous Acme Corporation, which makes all of the gadgets and products used by Wile E. Coyote and others throughout the animated universe. The Looney Tunes characters will not be the focus of the film.
The site adds that Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who worked with Carell on Crazy Stupid Love, are in early talks to direct the film, which will be a live action/CGI hybrid. Roy Lee and Dan Lin (The LEGO Movie) will produce.
