A Jetsons animated movie is reportedly in the works

The Jetsons might just get a second chance on the silver screen. Warner Bros. has hired writer Matt Lieberman to pen a script for a feature film based on the iconic Hanna-Barbera show from the early ‘60s, reports Deadline and Variety. According to those reports, the script is being put together from scratch for an animated feature. (There have been murmurs of a live-action "Jetsons" film over the past couple of years, but this is a different project.) Lieberman is also working on a "Scooby-Doo" animated film, which is further along the production cycle.

Back in 1990, The Jetsons had a less-than-stellar theatrical debut with Jetsons: The Movie. Despite being directed by Joseph Barbera, one of the show's original creators, the film was widely panned. Let's hope they do better this time.
