Default Jane, Get me off this crazy thing!!

After discussing old cartoon to movie adaptations in another thread I thought I'd make this one. For the longest time I have wondered WHY DON'T WE HAVE A LIVE ACTION JETSONS MOVIE BY NOW. We've had two Flintstones films of which only one was any good. I think a Jetsons movie could be great and have some really great visuals. If they did this movie I would love to see Edward Norton play George Jetson and either Danny DeVito or Bob Hoskins to play Mr. Spacely. I would also like to see them give an explanation as to why we never see the grounf on the Jetsons. Was it because they just went the futuristic route and decide everything should be in the sky or did we fuck it up so bad that we had to move skyward? What do you guys think? Would you want to see this? Who would you want involved.

Never thought about it, but that would be interesting.

Found this on WIkipedia. I remember some of this being mentioned.

Quote:
Live-action filmIn May 2007, director Robert Rodriguez entered talks with Universal Studios and Warner Bros. to film a live action film adaptation of The Jetsons for a potential 2009 theatrical release, having at the time discussed directing a film adaptation of Land of the Lost with Universal Studios. Rodriguez was uncertain which project he would pursue next, though the latest script draft for The Jetsons by assigned writer Adam Goldberg was further along in development.[14] The film, produced by Denise Di Novi alongside Donald De Line with Hanna-Barbera Productions, Universal Studios and Warner Bros. was set for a 2012 release.[15][16] It was put on hold by Rodriguez in favor of a fourth Spy Kids film.[17]

If done correctly it could be really good, if not..... I don't want to think about that.

True but that could be said of any adaptation.

We may not but it's quite the money maker. And I believe that Rodriguez has stated that he really likes making them.

I think the Jetsons are now too out of date. it would be targeted at kids and Kid now a days dont really know who the jetsons are. If it was done around the same time as the flintstones I could see it doing fairly well, but now it doesnt seem to fit in.

I think it could still work. And the theme of the Jetsons has changed throughout the years. In the 60 it was mostly about the space race and seemed more focused on that. In the 80's it became more about the future of technology and it's impact on the world at large.

I'm sure someone has a script but it has not been green lit by any studio. I'd like to see the actor that plays Philip from Modern Family to George Jetson and Danny Devito play his boss Mr. Spacely.

Growing up, I was never a Jetsons fan. I always thought it was an unfunny knock-off, futuristic version of the Flintstones.

I'd watch The Jetsons once in the while, but I wouldn't make a point to watch it.

Since The Jetsons is just The Flintstones IN SPACE!!! I doubt they would waste the money since The Flinstones movies tanked.

The first one was quite successful, if I remember correctly.

Hello Rhonda, people that's exactly what it was, it was meant to be a future version of the Flintstones that was the whole idea...I think if done right it might actually be good.

Am I the only one here who hated both? I remember when cartoon network had a whole Flintstones weekend and I just groaned. A whole weekend of Dexter's Lab, Courage the Cowardly Dog or Powerpuff Girls would have been awesome but I've never laughed, been entertained or seen how anyone could do either during both shows.

Have you seen her lately? This was her in "Machete Kills" only 6 years ago:



And this is her today (from her IG):



Talk about rapid aging. And she's only 31.
