Will Ferrell and Anchorman director/writer Adam McKay are developing a CGI-animated Flintstones pic, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Chris Henchy (The Campaign) will write the script.
The Flintstones, which no longer have the cachet that they once did, are considered a cultural relic to anyone under the age of 20—if the characters are even recognized. They are in desperate need of a fresh take. Who knows if Ferrell and McKay are capable of delivering a good reboot, but I have more faith in them than Seth MacFarlane, who unsuccessfully attempted to reboot the property with his predictable sense of humor.
