The live-action Jetsons movie is set to get a rewrite. Variety reports that Warner Bros. has hired Van Robichaux and Evan Susser (Chewie) to pen its adaptation of the classic Hanna-Barbera TV toon. The long-gestating project will be produced by Donald De Line and Denise Di Novi. A recent draft was written by Adam F. Goldberg.
The story will focus on "the life and times of George, Jane, Judy, and Elroy Jetson." The Jetsons first aired in 1962 as Hanna-Barbera's futuristic answer to The Flintstones. In 1990, Warner Bros released a cartoon version of the show directed by Joseph Barbera.
I always like The Jetsons and The Flintstones and am interested in seeing a live-action take on this. Let's hope it is a lot better than the live-action Flintstones. What are your thoughts on this news?
