Will Ferrell and Adam McKay Are Producing an Animated 'Flintstones' Movie

The Flintstones is getting rebooted again. THR reports that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are producing a full-length, animated Flintstones movie via their company Gary Sanchez. No director is attached, but the script is being written by Chris Henchy, who's a partner at Gary Sanchez and co-wrote the Ferrell vehicles The Other Guys, Land of the Lost, and The Campaign.

Seth MacFarlane was previously attached to resuscitate the Flintstones franchise. He was developing a primetime animated series reboot for Fox back in 2011, but the network shut the project down a year later after not liking the pilot script.

Seth MacFarlane to Reboot, Ruin The Flintstones

Apparently, Fox has gotten the rights from Hanna-Barbera for Seth MacFarlane to remake The Flintstones for them. I'm sure his remake will be tasteful and respectful of the source material, and what results will surely be better than the original. Right? Right guys?!?! [via]
