DreamWorks Animation has brought on Bob's Burgers writers and siblings Lizzie Molyneux and Wendy Molyneux to write the script for Hot Stuff, based on the Harvey Comics title Hot Stuff the Little Devil.
The studio acquired the character back in 2012 during their purchase of Classic Media, the modern-day owner of Harvey Comics and a library of other iconic characters such as Casper the Friendly Ghost, Where's Waldo?, Lassie, The Lone Ranger, George of the Jungle and Rocky & Bullwinkle.
Hot Stuff the Little Devil was created in 1957 by Warren Kremer, who is also behind Casper the Friendly Ghost, Richie Rich and Little Audrey. The character is a devil demon child who loves to cause trouble, but also enjoys doing good deeds for others, which irritates his fellow devils.
No plot details have surfaced, but insiders claim that that the project is being crafted as a live-action/CGI hybrid, which would be a first for DreamWorks Animation, although the studio refused to comment.
Lizzie Molyneux and Wendy Molyneux are best known for their work on Bob's Burgers, and they also have an overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television. They have also written the features The Day I Turned Uncool, which is in development at Paramount, and My Sister Is Marrying a Douchebag, which landed on The Black List in 2009.
