Classic Nickelodeon shows are getting their own "Nick Toons" film inspired by Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
Get ready for a huge blast from the past as it looks like Paramount Pictures is creating a new film starring the various characters from classic 90's Nickelodeon shows that seems to be inspired by the 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. As of now it is unclear if "Nick Toons" will feature both live action and animation like Who Framed Roger Rabbit but it is definitely clear that the characters will all be crossing over into one giant film story.
Deadline has reported that Jared Hess has been chosen to direct the film and will write the film with his wife Jarusha Hess.
"The pic is based on an idea by Ali Mendes, who works for Parent at Disruption Entertainment. Mendes grew up loving the characters and hatched the idea to bring them together. Anybody in their 20s, or their parents, won’t need a primer for the signature Nickelodeon characters that will be part of the film at this point: Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s Modern Life, Aaahh! Real Monsters, and The Angry Beavers. I’d like to suggest they not forget about the subversive anthology show KaBlam! and its absurdly unforgettable characters from Action League Now, Tiki Brothers and Prometheus And Bob. All are part of the vast Nickelodeon character library from the past 25 years that can be exploited to frame an original story the studio hopes will spark a franchise."If this all comes to fruition then there are a lot of adults out there who will be very excited to revisit their favorite childhood characters. At the moment I am cautiously optimistic but this is definitely a film that I would go see. PLEASE BE GOOD!
