It might not make sense, but according to Vulture, Warner Bros. is now developing a new live action/CGI movie to bring Le Pew back into the spotlight, with Myers voicing the little stinker himself. In fact, the studio has made the re-introduction of Looney Tunes characters a "high prioirity," so we should expect this project to be more than one random 'Space Jam' type of affair.
