New Line is bringing Speedy Gonzales, the "fastest mouse in all of Mexico", to the bigscreen, and has set Garfield scribes Alec Sokolow and Joel Cohen to adapt the classic animated Looney Tunes character into a live-action/CG hybrid feature.

George Lopez is attached to voice Speedy, according to Heat Vision.

We wanted to make sure that it was not the Speedy of the 1950s -- the racist Speedy," Anne Lopez said with a chuckle. "Speedy's going to be a misunderstood boy who comes from a family that works in a very meticulous setting, and he's a little too fast for what they do. He makes a mess of that. So he has to go out in the world to find what he's good at.

That path becomes clearer once Speedy befriends a gun-shy race-car driver.
