“Flintstones” fans; get ready to scream “Yabba Dabba Do.”
Elizabeth Banks and her production company Brownstone Productions are reportedly teaming up with Warner Bros. to bring the beloved stone-age family back to TV.
According to Variety, the “Flintstones”, which is in very early stages, is getting a modern makeover as an adult animated series.
The new project has yet to sign onto an outlet.
The original animated “Flintstones” series ran from 1960-66 for six seasons before getting live-action feature films in 1994 (John Goodman and Rick Moranis) and 2000 (Mark Addy and Stephen Baldwin).
Banks and Brownstone recently signed an overall deal with Warner Bros.TV and has since produced the studio’s comedy pilot “Patty’s Auto” and “Shrill”.
Next up, Banks is producing, directing and will star in the upcoming “Charlie’s Angel” reboot, which hits big screens in November.
