Having made appearances on the big screen previously, Bugs Bunny is no stranger to the cinematic experience — but this time will be different, as the whole movie centers around the life story of the most famous rabbit in the world.
Writer and director Robert Rugan has revealed that he was hired to write the script for a live-action/animation hybrid film centered solely on Bugs Bunny for Warner Bros., as per a post on his website.
While Rugan did not provide further details, he announced that more information would be revealed shortly.
