Mike Myers to voice Pepé Le Pew in new film

Mike Myers is set to voice French love-skunk Pepé Le Pew in an upcoming live-action/CGI film for Warner Bros.

According to Vulture, WB are desperate to reintroduce their stable of Looney Tunes characters (including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Elmer Fudd) to a new audience. They recently attached a new 3-D Wile E. Coyote cartoon to prints of Legend of the Guardians.

Disney currently collects more than US$5 billion a year from licensing their characters, and WB (who earn less than a fifth of that figure) are hoping to similarly cash in on their fast-fading icons.

So, we know that this film is being made for artistic reasons!

Although much of the film will be live action, Pepé Le Pew (and his love interest Penelope Pussycat) will be CGI creations.

Let’s hope the film comes with as creepy a poster as that other live-action/CGI hybrid Yogi Bear!
