It’s official: A new Jetsons movie is finally on the way.
After years of rumors and various failed Hollywood negotiations, it looks as though a new animated feature on the Space Age family has commenced production. Warner Bros. has hired Matt Lieberman to pen the script, which will be based on the ’60s cartoon series from Hanna-Barbera. Lieberman’s past writing credits include Dr. Doolittle: Tail to the Chief, the new Scooby-Doo film, and a reboot of Short Circuit.
It’s unclear how different this new movie will be from the 1990 animated flick, Jetsons: The Movie, or whether Kanye West — who was previously attached to a live-action version of the film as creative director — will still be involved.
