WB sets rewrite of ‘Jetsons’ script

Scribes Robichaux, Susser to rework live-action feature

Warner Bros. has tapped “Chewie” scribes Van Robichaux and Evan Susser to rewrite its bigscreen version of TV toon “The Jetsons.”

Donald De Line and Denise Di Novi are producing the live-action feature, which the latter has been developing for more than a decade with a number of different writers. Most recently, Adam F. Goldberg had been penning the screenplay.

Storyline will center around the Hanna-Barbera show, which revolved around the life and times of George, Jane, Judy and Elroy Jetson. The TV series first aired in primetime in 1962 as Hanna-Barbera’s Space Age counterpart to “The Flintstones.”

This isn’t the first time a studio has brought the popular TV skein to the big screen. Universal released a “Jetsons” pic in 1990, directed by Joseph Barbera, co-founder of the Hanna-Barbera company and one of the creators of the original series from 1962.

WME and Untitled Entertainment rep both scribes.
