Warner Bros. are planning on bringing classic Hanna-Barbera series The Jetsons to the big screen in their own animated movie. There was talk of a live-action version some time ago, but that never came to anything (which is probably for the best considering the fact that Kanye West was rumoured to be involved somehow).

Matt Lierberman is said to be writing the movie’s script from scratch, and it will be a fully animated feature.

The Jetsons is the latest in a long line of classic Hanna-Barbera TV shows to have been brought to the big screen in some way, as Warner Bros. own the entire catalogue which was originally acquired by Ted Turner.

Lieberman was chosen for the job after impressing studio bosses with his work on the upcoming Scooby-Doo reboot (which unlike the last version will also be full animated rather than blending CGI characters with live-action actors). That movie has been put on the fast track, but it’s still early days for The Jetsons right now.

The Jetsons were first introduced in 1962 and were viewed as a space age replacement to The Flintstones!

Lieberman has a number of projects in the works, including Paramount Animation’s Giant Monsters Attack Japan, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, Evil Genius, and a number of others. How these will pan out remains to be seen.
