Warner sez ‘Bravo’ to scribe duo

Studio teams with sister co. on live-action pic

Warner Bros. Pictures has hired the writing team of Matthew Berry and Eric Abrams to pen the live-action feature adaptation of Cartoon Network’s “Johnny Bravo,” with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson attached to star.

Pic, being developed by Cartoon Network and the studio, was optioned from Cartoon Network and “Bravo” creator-writer-director Van Partible.

Original Film’s Neal Moritz and Marty Adelstein will produce, with Van Partible serving as exec producer.

Original’s Tania Landau and WB’s Greg Silverman and Alicia Cotter are overseeing the project.

Pic will have Bravo looking for his long-lost father in a coming-of-age action-comedy. Pic marks the first time WB has teamed with sister company Cartoon Network on a live-action feature.

Berry and Abrams previously wrote spec “Undercover Elvis” and the “New Muppet Show” pilot for Team Todd and the Henson Co. at Fox Broadcasting last year.

Duo, repped by CAA and Industry Entertainment, also closed a blind script deal with Twentieth Television and Suzanne Daniels for a half-hour.
