Sources tell Entertainment Weekly a full-length, animated Flintstones flick is in development at Warner Bros. The studio got the rights to the vintage cartoon when Time Warner acquired Turner Broadcasting in 1996.
The last Flintstones big-screen reboot had some big names behind it, too. Steven Spielberg produced the 1994 live-action movie, starring John Goodman, Rosie O'Donnell and Elizabeth Taylor. (Via Universal Pictures / "The Flintstones")
But that wasn't enough to make it a hit with the critics -- the flick only managed to scrape together a 22 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
And its prequel, 2000's "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas," was even worse. According to Cinema Blend, the movie made a dismal $59 million worldwide on an $83 million budget.
But that hasn't stopped people from trying to bring the iconic show back from the Stone Age.
The Hollywood Reporter says Seth MacFarlane has been pushing for a “Flintstones” TV reboot on Fox for years now. But apparently, the network shut down the project after “The Family Guy” creator turned in a disappointing pilot script.
Hopefully, this budding attempt at bringing back Fred, Barney and the rest of the gang goes down in history ... for the right reasons.
