Warner Bros. and WWE Studios today announced they are once again teaming up; this time to co-produce an animated The Flinstones/WWE Movie to be released in early 2015.
Fred, Barney and the whole Bedrock gang join up with Vince McMagma (Vince McMahon), and WWE Superstars and Divas including John Cenastone (John Cena) and CM Punkrock (C.M. Punk) as part of the very first WWE main event.
Here's what WWE Studios president Michael Luisi had to say about the project.
"WWE is family-friendly entertainment, so partnering with Warner Bros. on a The Flinstones/WWE Movie was a natural extension of our Scooby Doo deal. This new, animated feature allows us to showcase our brand with young fans and loyal The Flintstones enthusiasts alike."
Warner Bros.' Jeff Brown also released his own statement.
"Warner Bros. is thrilled to continue our partnership with WWE Studios as we begin production of the latest Flintstones animated feature. Our recent production collaborations have proven successful and we have the utmost confidence that the latest tag team between the WWE Superstars and The Flintstones will deliver the same results."
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will handle worldwide distribution on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download. The film will be co-produced by Warner Bros. Animation and WWE Studios. WWE will utilize its extensive global reach through its television, digital media and print assets to market the release of the film.
