Growing up as a kid, The Jetsons was one of those shows you wished you lived in. Flying cars, pods that dropped you off where you needed to be, and robot maids. Now, some of this technology has become somewhat of a reality. Artificial intelligence is a thing. Flying cars may have to wait several more years, but at least there are conveyor belts to move people along. But check out what Justin Lin did when he teamed up with futuristic tech company, Arconic, to produce a live-action Jetsons commercial.

New Writers Hired For ‘The Jetsons’ For Some Reason

Wait, this is still happening? Variety is reporting that two new writers have be brought on board the long delayed Jetsons live action mistake movie. Van Robichaux and Evan Susser, best known for their spec script Chewie ( the making of Star Wars from the perspective of wookie thespian Peter Mayhew), have been hired to work on the screenplay. The screenplay to a movie that has been in development hell for over a decade.

So, write away writers! Chances of of it actually being used are slim to none. The last time we had any kind update on the flick was months ago, and it wasn’t very promising. Producer Denise Di Novi told ComingSoon.net this last summer.

“I’ve been developing that for so many years,” she said at the time. “…Part of it is that every couple of years, the genre kind of changes. I really credit Jeff Robinov at Warner Bros. with this. In choosing Chris Nolan to do Batman, he really exploded the expectations on adapting all these kinds of titles, the pressure is on to really make them the coolest movies, not the cornball cartoon movies. Every couple years it’s changed what they thought the movie should be and I’m hoping now we’re hitting it at the right time. I’ve never given up on that movie.”

This dead horse is based on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon that ripped off the the Hanna-Barbera cartoon The Flinstones that ripped off the The Honeymooners that is currently being ripped off by Family Guy, American Dad…. hell anything Seth McFarlane does.

Obviously, Michael Bay and Peter Jackson had the best film productions of ALL TIME. But it looks like Kanye West is gearing up to compete with them.

You read that right, folks. Kanye West may be the next creative director for the live-action Jetsons movie that was written by Adam Goldberg.  I have no fuckin’ idea how that is even going to work, but he recently took to Twitter saying that he Has Good Ideas.  Like, y’know, drunkenly stage-bombing an awards show.

I was just discussing becoming the creative director for the Jetson movie and someone on the call yelled out.. you should do a Jetsons tour!

This just happened a few hours ago. I was very insulted of course becuase for anyone that’s seen the Watch the Throne Tour

Or Coachella or Glow in the Dark or Runaway.. you know I have real ideas…

A later tweet made it very clear what his Good Ideas are and where he stands in his creative orientation:

I don’t want to see any movie that doesn’t have mind blowing special effects… #EVERAGAIN

So, basically, if he ends up being the creative director of this flick, chances are there will be a shit ton of “money shots”.  Whether or not they involve bodily fluids will have to be seen.

And, yeah, this is also a sign that the Jetsons movie is still happening.  But if Kanye West is involved, perhaps it’s not happening would be a favor to the world.

Discuss.
