Faris, Aykroyd, and Timberlake up for YOGI BEAR
Not to be outdone buy his Ghostbusters co-star Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd may soon be voicing classic cartoon star Yogi Bear in what will likely be a critical darling on the same level as Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties. Yogi Bear, a CG-animated/live-action adaptation from Warner Bros., may also star Anna Faris as a documentary filmmaker who follows Yogi and his faithful pick-a-nic basket stealing companion Boo Boo. Justin Timberlake is up for the voice of Yogi’s Boo.
According to THR, all three are just in talks and no one is signed yet. I do, however, enjoy the thought of Aykroyd saying “Hey there, Boo Boo” to Timberlake. I just envision him doing it with an empty bottle tequila rattling around by his feet.
