Fun Movie News

Two fun movies news tidbits: Apparently, George Lucas has himself confirmed he is contemplating a fifth Indiana Jones movie, again dependent upon having all three principals (Lucas, Spielberg, and Harrison Ford) being available all at the same time.

Second, and even more interesting:

Warner Launches Marvin The Martian

Warner Brothers is launching development of a Marvin the Martian movie at Alcon Entertainment, which will blend live action with computer animation, Variety reported. Alcon principals Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove will produce, along with Steve Crystal.

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.

The film was pitched 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.
Ok, that's just COOL! Will Bugs Bunny be in it? It REALLY wouldn't be the same without him...
