Congratulations to both Oni Press and creators Brendan Hay and Justin Wagner on the news that their graphic novel Rascal Raccoon’s Raging Revenge has been picked up by Warner Bros. for possible movie adaptation. For those who haven’t read the book – which came out last year – imagine a cross between Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and “The Coyote Gospel” from Grant Morrison’s Animal Man: it’s about a cartoon character who crosses over to the real world after accidentally killing his longtime nemesis, out to find the animator that created the two of them.
The project already has a director attached, and it’s a good fit: A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas’ Todd Strauss-Schulson is the man planned to be in the big chair when the movie gets made, according to the Hollywood Reporter, with Matt Fogel on board to write the script for the planned CGI/Live-Action movie. With Warners being the studio behind the project, what’re the odds we’ll get to see some classic Looney Toons characters in there too…?
