Producer: Jetsons live-action movie still a go

Producer Donald De Line told Dark Horizons that a live-action movie based on the 1960s animated TV series The Jetsons is still a go. The movie was first announced in May of 2007.

"In fact, Robert Rodriguez, who lives right here in Austin, has done a great draft of the script, and we're all talking with Warners right now about getting that together," De Line said.

Rodriguez is the writer/director behind Sin City and Spy Kids, among other things.

The original incarnation of the half-hour Hanna-Barbera show, about an American nuclear family in a fantasized jet-age future, aired Sunday nights on ABC from Sept. 23, 1962, to March 3, 1963.
