"Acme Co." is one of the most famous fictional companies in pop culture history. It is, of course, the business that supplied Wile E. Coyote with all of the tools that he used to try and catch the Roadrunner (I've never understood why he kept returning to them considering how awful the results typically were). But for for as many times as we've seen the logo, audiences have never been privy to what goes on at the weapons manufacturing giant. Now we will. THR reports that Warner Bros. has picked up a pitch from writers Kevin and Dan Hageman based on the Acme warehouse. The concept was developed with producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee and they hope that it will be a new way to relaunch the Looney Tunes franchise.
I can understand this idea being developed as a short, but how can they turn this idea into a feature? Paired with the Mike Myers/Pepe Le Pew project and the Roadrunner cartoon from this past summer, the studio seems to be dead set on bringing back some of the greatest cartoons in history. With any luck, they'll actually do it right.
