Warner Bros. Pictures has purchased the live-action feature film rights to Cartoon Network's half-hour series Johnny Bravo as a potential starring vehicle for the Rock, reports Variety. The film was optioned from Cartoon Network and "Bravo" creator/writer/director Van Partible.
"When the Rock mentioned to Neal (Moritz) and myself he was a big fan of 'Johnny Bravo' and thought it was a great idea for a movie, we thought it was a natural fit and potentially a great role for him to play, so we went aggressively after the property," said producer Marty Adelstein.
"Bravo," a half-hour series that debuted in July 1997, is one of Cartoon Network's signature original shows, and has been a huge hit for the network. The animated series is about a big-muscled, big haired sweet-talking ladies man who sounds like Elvis, loves his mother and worships himself -- and continually proves to be his own worse enemy.
