Warner Bros. acquires a pitch from Kevin and Dan Hagerman (Lego movie) for a mixed live-action and CGI animated movie that focuses on the inner workings of life at the ACME warehouse best known as where the Looney Tunes cartoons get all their various supplies, per Heat Vision. The Hagerman brothers have been developing the concept with the help of producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee. The Looney Tunes characters will not be featured in the movie, but lots of the crazy ACME devices will be. The look of the movie is described as being like the Amblin movies of the 1980s or in the vain of the Men in Black movie.
Zack Galifianakis joins the cast of the upcoming Muppet movie, The Muppets (working title), per an interview on E! Online.
