Warner Bros. is developing Marvin the Martian at Alcon Entertainment. The project will be a blend of live action and CGI.
According to Variety, Marvin was created by Chuck Jones and made his first appearance in a Looney Tunes cartoon in 1948. The character was often intent on blowing up the Earth, only to be foiled by Bugs Bunny.
Co-producer Steve Crystal, a former Warner exec with a first-look deal at Alcon through his Charlie Co. banner, developed the pitch as a Christmas story, with Marvin coming to Earth to destroy Christmas but being prevented from doing so when he's trapped in a gift box. Alcon is looking for writers and directors.
No production date has been set.
