The Martian Chronicles

Considering how popular he (and his merchandise) has been over the years, here's some news you can file under "Huh, I wonder why they never thought of this before": Marvin the Martian, the intergalactic Looney Tunes character celebrating his 60th birthday this year, will soon star in his own feature film.

Warner Bros. is currently developing the movie, which will reportedly mix live action and computer animation. For some reason, they are going with a holiday-themed plot, what sounds like a mix of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, although that could change. Well, as long as it's better then Space Jam ...

No word yet if Marvin's frequent co-stars Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck (a.k.a. Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century) will appear, but I'm sure he'll have his trusty Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator on hand.
