It Never Stops! Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake & Anna Faris Join ‘Yogi Bear’
  |  @   |  

In yet another announcement regarding a classic cartoon character, it appears as though there is a Yogi Bear movie in the works, and it’s actually set to begin filming next month. Naturally, this will be another hybrid movie that will mix live-action humans with the former cartoons getting their CGI makeover.

This comes from an Entertainment Weekly report stating that there are three big names currently in negotiations to take the lead roles in the movie: Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake, and Anna Faris. If these talks all work out in the end, Aykroyd would voice the picnic-addicted bear Yogi; Timberlake would take on his tiny little buddy Boo-Boo, and Faris would be playing a nature documentary film maker named Rachel that chooses the bears as her latest project.

Yogi Bear will be directed by Eric Brevig (Journey to the Center of the Earth) and written by Brad Copeland (Arrested Development, Wild Hogs). If production begins on time, it will probably see a release some time in 2010 — most likely toward the end of the year.

This Yogi news comes right on the heels of the announcement of Marmaduke and Berenstain Bears movies being made. This trio of live-action/CGI films will follow in the path of others before it like Garfield, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Underdog.
