Why, Mike?!?! Why?!?!?

Mike Myers to Voice PepÈ Le Pew In New Movie
Heís French, heís in love and he stinks. Of course, weíre talking about PepÈ Le Pew, the famously accented Looney Tunes skunk who strolls around Paris looking for beautiful women. Well, it seems that everyoneís favorite lovelorn skunk is going to be coming to the big screen and that heíll be voiced not by the late Mel Blanc, but instead by none other than the current man of a thousand voices, Mike Myers. Warner Brothers is developing a film based on PepÈ where he and the girl of his dreams, Penelope Pussycat, would be CG characters and everyone else would be real. Hit the jump for more on this turn of events and to see a video of what PepÈ Le Pew means in todayís popular culture.
Vulture broke the story of Myersí involvement in this project and said that ìthe decision to reinvigorate the Looney Tunes cast of characters ó which includes fading American icons like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig ó is a high priority for Warner BrothersÖ.î Does that mean weíre going to get big screen films starring all of the Looney Tunes? Anything is possible, they are shooting a movie based on Battleship after all. Warner Brothers is losing the Harry Potter franchise next year and while they have more Batman and Superman films on the horizon, theyíve been looking at all their properties to find sustainable franchises to fill Potterís billion dollar hole.. Thatís why weíre getting Green Lantern next year and why other DC characters could be coming in a few years.
