Eric Brevig has come on board to direct Yogi, Warner Bros.' 3D film version of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brevig is a longtime visual effects supervisor whose credits include The Day After Tomorrow and Men In Black, directed Warners and Walden's Journey to the Center of the Earth, a 3D pic that earned more than $230 million worldwide in the summer.

Ash Brannon was attached to helm Yogi when it was a 2D vehicle.

Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, who executive produced That '70s Show, are penning the screenplay for Yogi, which will offer a new take on the half-century-old title character and his sidekick Boo Boo, who get into a series of misadventures in Jellystone Park.

The movie is expected to combine live action and CG in the manner of Alvin and the Chipmunks, a hit for Fox in 2007.

No production date has been set.
