New ‘The Flintstones’ Movie In Early Development At Warner Bros.
Yabba Dabba Doo! The caveman times are making a comeback.
Fred Flintstone and his beloved family and friends will be returning to the big screen with the help of funnyman Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions. The cartoon show, created by Hanna-Barbera, ran from 1960-1966. It was the first animation effort to be nominated for a primetime Emmy in the comedy series.
Warner Bros. acquired rights to show with Time Warner’s acquisition of Turner Broadcasting in 1996. Creator of “Family Guy” Seth MacFarlane agreed to executive produce a new Flintstones television series in 2011, but the project was delayed. However, the creation of Warner Animation Group has upped animation antics for a Flintstones movie with early developments underway.
Universal made the live-action movie The Flintstones in 1994, featuring John Goodman, Elizabeth Perkins, Rick Moranis and Rosie O’Donnell. The flick successfully grossed $341 million in box offices worldwide. You can see the trailer for the 2011 film below:
