Marvin the Martian

Variety was reporting that Warner Bros. was developing a live action/CG feature film starring Marvin the Martian back in 2008.

Marvin was created by Chuck Jones and made his debut in a 1948 Looney Tunes cartoon Haredevil Hare along with his Martian dog, K-9 although he is unnamed in this film. The character earlier known as Commander X-2 was often set to blow up planet Earth, only to be foiled by Bugs Bunny.

Producer Steve Crystal developed the pitch as a Christmas story, with Marvin coming to Earth to destroy Christmas but being prevented from doing so when he’s trapped in a gift box.

This time Alex Zamm (Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2) who has posted test footage from in-development Hong Kong Phooey live action movie also has posted footage from a more-promising, but shelved, Marvin the Martian hybrid movie on his Vimeo page.

The Marvin the Martian material is better, it’s essentially a short and a bit more ‘cartoony’ than most of the hybrids produced these days, but probably not enough people were demanding this feature version.
