Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has decided to no longer ignore one of their most lucrative franchises and is looking to get the Looney Tunes back in the spotlight.

The studio has hired David Berenbaum ('Elf,' 'The Spiderwick Chronicles') to write a live-action/CG feature film that will star the beloved animated characters. No producer has been assigned yet.

It's been a while since the Looney Tunes appeared in a feature film. Warner scored a slam dunk in 1996 with 'Space Jam' (pictured) but sputtered out in 2003 with director Joe Dante's 'Looney Tunes: Back in Action.'

This is a welcome return to the well on the studio's part, as it's been so concentrated on its DC comic book franchises lately (and not really getting anywhere beyond more 'Batman' sequels). Time to give some love to Bugs Bunny and friends!
