I just found out today that they made a movie version of Ian
Frazier’s classic 1990 New Yorker piece Coyote V. Acme, in
which Wile E. Coyote files a product liability lawsuit against the
Acme Company. [...]
My excitement was tempered almost immediately by hearing that
Warner Bros. has shelved the completed film (starring John Cena &
Will Forte and produced by James Gunn) in order to take a $30
million tax write-off.
Walt Disney once said (and the Disney company still oft repeats): “We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies.”
Warner Brothers Discovery CEO David Zaslav is a vulture and a disgrace. His top priority should be putting good movies out into the world.
