Dan Aykroyd is Yogi Bear. Justin Timberlake is Boo Boo. I want to gouge out my eyes with a spoon.

yogibearIn a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Anna Faris and Dan Aykroyd are in talks to star in Warner Bros. Yogi Bear. This will be a feature film based on the popular cartoon.

Yet another example of the film business destroying out childhood things.

Also negotiating to join the project is Justin Timberlake. Eric Brevig is directing this project which will be both live-action/CG.

Faris is going to play a nature documentarian who tags along on the antics of a bear in Jellystone Park. Aykroyd is going to voice Yogi, and Timberlake might voice Yogi’s companion, Boo Boo. I keep forgetting that Anna Faris was in Lost in Translation.

It looks as if the Ghostbusters are going to voice CGI characters one by one. Murray was Garfield, now Aykroyd as Yogi. That just leaves Ramis and Hudson.

The plan is for production on this project to start in New Zealand this December.

My plan is to get a posse together and stop yet another abomination of a film concept destroyed!
